How do you obtain a medical marijuana card in Florida?

I have been asked how does one obtain Medical Cannabis in Florida now that Amendment 2 has passed. Before you go looking to buy some bud, this short list of guidelines should get you pointed in the right direction.

  1. Patients must be at least 18 years of age
  2. You must be a Florida Resident with a valid Florida I.D. as proof of residency. If you do not have a Florida I.D. an out of state I.D., passport, or other photo I.D. with proof of residency such as bank statement, utility bill, etc. is acceptable.
  3. Patients must obtain legitimate medical records or documentation from your primary care physician describing their diagnosis and bring these records with you to your marijuana evaluation appointment.
  4. The qualifying patient must have been diagnosed by a physician as having a debilitating medical condition. Additionally, the patient must be a patient of the ordering doctor for at least 3 months prior to the diagnosis.
  5. All patients will be required to register with the Department of Health, details will be provided once the Florida Medical Marijuana Program has been fully implemented by the DOH.
  6. A patient must have tried other treatments without success and the ordering doctor must determine the risks of use are reasonable in respect to the benefits to the patient.
