A new online registration system will allow patients to buy medical marijuana when it becomes available in January.

State health officials say patients need certification from a registered doctor, before they access the online system to apply for an identification card.

Patients also need photo ID and documentation that shows they are a resident.

Those under 18 years old should apply through a proxy.
