No, registered medical marijuana patients do not need to report lost or stolen medical cannabis cards in Virginia.
Registered medical marijuana cardholders can replace their cards by contacting the Virginia Board of Pharmacy (BOP) via email. The board will then provide instructions with the steps required for getting replacement medical marijuana cards.
The BOP will advise anyone seeking to replace their Virginia medical marijuana card with the service cost when it responds to their email request.
Virginia has no specific timeline for replacing medical marijuana cards, as medical cards are no longer mandatory.
