MassCIP Migration Update: Law Enforcement Temporarily Unable to Confirm Medical Use of Marijuana Program Registration Status

As a reminder, the Medical Use of Marijuana Program Online System (Online System) will transition from the Commonwealth’s Virtual Gateway (VG) to the Massachusetts Cannabis Industry Portal (MassCIP) on Monday, January 27. The VG/Online System will be shut down from Friday, January 24 (6 p.m.) until Monday, January 27 (9 a.m.) to do a system backup before relaunching in MassCIP. 

Law enforcement will be unable to access the Online System feed and confirm Medical Use of Marijuana Program (Program) registration status while the Department of Criminal Justice Information Services updates their systems to integrate with MassCIP. The Cannabis Control Commission has recommended that law enforcement agencies accept Program ID cards as sufficient proof of Program registration.

As a reminder, registered patients and caregivers may have up to a 60-day supply of marijuana (10 ounces, or the equivalent in other forms such as edible marijuana-infused products), and must carry their Program ID card at all times while in possession of marijuana for medical use. Please consult an attorney if you have any questions about patients’ rights.
