    Hi…I’m a VA resident and I want to get my medical card. On this site it says I need the referral, is that from any dr or it has to be a dr licensed in VA?? I look forward to your response. Thank you.

      Virginia doesn’t have an established program yet, and no dispensaries are open. To get a card in Maryland or DC you need to prove residency in either of those states.
