The City of West Hollywood has a Medical Marijuana Compassionate Use Program that offers low-income West Hollywood residents, who require medical-grade cannabis as part of an approved treatment plan, a 25% discount on Medical Marijuana through participating local, licensed businesses.

In order to qualify for the program, you must provide proof of the following three requirements:

  • RESIDENCY: copy of utility bill or lease in your name showing West Hollywood address; or current driver’s license with West Hollywood address.
  • FINANCIAL NEED: a document showing current enrollment in a public benefits program (i.e. MediCal, CalFresh), 3 months of current, consecutive pay stubs, or previous year’s tax return showing income less than 200% of Federal Poverty Level
  • MEDICAL NEED: a letter from your primary healthcare provider that recommends the therapeutic use of cannabis as part of an approved treatment plan

    Eligibility must be renewed annually.

    Please note: this program is not intended for recreational use.

    A non-profit social service provider will provide the eligibility screening and approval for West Hollywood residents. Please call Being Alive at (323) 874-4322 to set up the screening.
