Law enforcement - Medical Marijuana Registry
Contact Colorado Peace Officer Standards Training (POST) for information about current marijuana-related curriculum and courses, printable handouts, the POST Training Calendar, and Legal Updates.
The Registry can only verify whether or not a patient is lawfully in possession of a registry identification card. The Registry cannot verify plant counts or physician certifications.
Law enforcement must have come in contact with an individual or be presented with a registry identification card before they can request that the Registry verify information.
Information can only be shared with authorized employees of state or local law enforcement.
The Query Medical Marijuana Patient (QMMP) function in the Colorado Crime Information Center (CCIC) is currently unavailable. We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible. In the meantime, please follow the instructions below to verify patient card status by contacting the Registry.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Law Enforcement Patient Status Verification.”
Attach a letter on your agency’s letterhead which includes your name, title, agency, badge information, a description of how you came into contact with the individual, and the individual’s name, date of birth, and registry identification card number.
Attach all documentation presented by the person, such as a copy of the registration card.
