Medical Marijuana- Orlando FL
Residents in the Orlando Florida and Orange County areas in general have access to many medical marijuana doctors in the region. Additionally, that area has recently exploded with medical marijuana dispensary options so patients have a variety of options to help their symptoms.
Florida law was updated in 2016 to allow for a broader range of symptoms to qualify for cannabis medical use. Medical conditions like chronic pain and anxiety are being approved by doctors. Over time, smoking was approved as a treatment option and there are expectations that you might not need a card in the future if recreational marijuana gets passed

Switching medical marijuana doctors
We get many questions about switching medical cannabis doctors. You, the medical marijuana patient, have control. You can go to any office / physician that you choose (assuming that doctor can see you).
In your mmuregistry account, there is an easy process (just the click of a button) to release yourself from your prior doctor so another doctor can approve you. Just add your login credentials to access your account and you should be able easily access the section.
Many patients do this because they have to see a doctor every 7 months. The saving can build up if you see a doctor roughly twice every 14 months. Better to spend the money on medicine!
