Getting your Florida Medical Marijuana Card

Three easy steps to getting your Florida medical marijuana card.

Do you think  it was difficult? Most people do, but it's actually pretty easy! Hope this helps!

See a Florida medical marijuana doctor

1. See a doctor. Schedule an appointment with a certified physician so they can do an exam and confirm that you have a condition that qualifies for a medical marijuana recommendation.  Not all doctors are certified to recommend medical marijuana in Florida, so you must find one that’s allowed.

Fyi- In Florida they don’t call it “prescribing” medical marijuana, they call it “recommending medical marijuana”.

You can typically call or schedule online with most doctors that do medical marijuana.

If they make the recommendation, they enter the patient's info into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry.

Apply for your Florida Medical Marijuana ID

2. After the doctor sees you, says you qualify and enters you into the registry, you’ll now need to register with the state. There are two options, mail in the application, or file online. We strongly suggest filing online in 2019 and we have some hints on how to do that in our “How to register for medical marijuana in Florida 2019” video. The state of Florida charges $75 a year for your medical marijuana ID.  There is a service charge if you pay online (a few dollars).

Purchase medical marijuana at a Florida dispensary!

3. After you get approved by the State, you can buy medical marijuana in Florida. There are more and more MMTCs (that’s what they call dispensaries in Florida in 2019) opening each month. You can visit the MMTCs, call and order, or order online, but you do need to be approved by the state before you can buy.
