Medical Deductions—Medical Marijuana and Other Illegal Substances

This memorandum is to reaffirm Food and Nutrition Service  (FNS) policy regarding the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) medical deduction and medicinal marijuana. Due to the increase in the number of states with laws that permit the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, FNS is now reaffirming its long standing policy that a household may not utilize the SNAP medical deduction for the cost of any substance considered illegal under federal law.
