    You:

    Get a bachelor's degree in a qualifying major (~4 years).

    Take the MCAT.

    Apply to medical schools and get accepted.

    Finish medical school (four years).

    Pass the USMLE step I.

    Finish residency (3-4 years). 

    Pass the USMLE step II and III. 

    Hold a license as an attending physician.

    Submit your application to the state for a marijuana prescriber's license. 

    That's it. Easy peasy twelve-year process and you're all set.

    A physician has an undergraduate degree, often in biology, and then goes to medical school.  After you have done these things, you can worry about specializing.

    a physician goes to med school and does far more that write Rxs for marijuana. If you mean just someone in a dispensary, you apply for the job.
