Qualifying taxpayers can claim expenses for medical marijuana and cannabis products in order to receive the non-refundable medical expenses tax credit.
If you have a prescription and buy your products from a licenced seller with whom you’re a registered client, you can claim cannabis, cannabis oil, cannabis plant seeds, and cannabis products. If you legally grow cannabis for your own medical purposes, you cannot claim equipment costs such as pots, soil, nutrients, and lights.
As with other medical expenses, you can claim for any previously unclaimed 12-month period, as long as it ends within the tax year. Cannabis expenses are entered into TurboTax the same way as other medical expenses.
