The WANP is re-posting this update from the Washington Department of Health.
Dear Healthcare Practitioners,
Mid-November 2017, communication efforts began to implement new medical marijuana authorization form (authorization) requirements. These requirements were rolled out in phases to assist with the transition.
Please note: Authorizations printed on prescription tamper-resistant paper are still valid if issued before July 1, 2018.
For additional details or form instructions, please visit the Medical marijuana authorization form website.
Where can I find authorization tamper-resistant paper?
Healthcare practitioners can order Medical Marijuana Authorization tamper-resistant paper from the same vendor they order prescription tamper-resistant paper. Under current law, tamper-resistant paper must be approved by the Pharmacy Commission. If your vendor is currently producing prescription tamper-resistant paper that has been approved by the Pharmacy Commission, and they need printing specifications for the authorization logo, please have them contact the Medical Marijuana program at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 360-236-4819, option 1. I want to learn more…
