Patient Advocacy

Sensible Minnesota's Patient Program provides cannabis patients with additional resources. Sensible Minnesota's Patient Advocate Program provides one-on-one assistance to patients. Patient Advocates are trained to help patients navigate the Minnesota Medical Cannabis Program ("MMCP") and to provide support to patients both inside and outside of the MMCP. Advocates are available to help patients determine if they qualify for the MMCP, educate patients on the intricacies of the MMCP, assist in patient registration with MMCP, and most importantly, seek out resources for patients, listen to concerns, and answer questions.
