A doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana is typically only valid for a period of one year (365 days). After the doctor’s recommendation expires, medical marijuana patients must get either it renewed from their existing doctor or go to a new doctor altogether.

It is always a good idea to call your doctor’s office and verify the length of a recommendation from them before you schedule a doctor’s appointment with them. Be wary of doctors who write recommendations that expire after anything under one year, as that is the standard as far as we are aware.
