       ADDITIONAL SIGNIFICANT PROGRAM INFORMATION


       The MMP was authorized through SB 420 (Chapter 875, Statutes of 2003), to clarify provisions
       of Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, and to create a medical marijuana
       identification card program for medically qualified patients and their caregivers.

       The Program began in May 2005 with 3 pilot counties and expanded statewide in August 2005.

       After the Department of Health Services split, the new CDPH logo was printed on Medical
       Marijuana Identification Cards beginning September 1, 2008.
