You will be sent an application form; to complete it you will need a doctor’s confirmation that you suffer from one of the conditions listed below and recommendation that marijuana will help to relieve that condition. The division of health will check the status of the doctor who provided the recommendation; they will also check out whether you have any past convictions for selling a controlled substance. On approval your registry id card will be issued at a dmv office in Las Vegas, Henderson, Reno, Elko, or Carson City.
