Florida Medical Marijuana Card - Get Yours, Here's How
Three Easy Steps to Getting Your Florida Medical Marijuana Card.
Most people think its difficult, but it's actually pretty easy!
STEP #1 - See a Florida Medical Marijuana Doctor
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.
Fun Fact- 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 recommend medical marijuana.
If they make the recommendation, they enter the patient's info into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry.
STEP #2 - Apply for Your Florida Medical Marijuana Card
After the doctor sees you, qualifies you, and enters you into the registry - you will now need to register with the state. There are two options; mail in the application or file online. We strongly suggest filing online! 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).
STEP #3 - Purchase Medical Marijuana at a Florida Dispensary
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) 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.
