Getting an MMJ Card in Florida

Getting an MMJ card in Florida is pretty straightforward and a streamlined process. To be approved for a medical marijuana card in Florida, you must meet the following conditions

  • Be at least 18 years of age.

For persons under the age of 18 years and who are not legally emancipated, certification by two physicians may be necessary. The second physician concurs with the first physician’s diagnosis. The opinion of a pediatric specialist carries a lot of weight in the approval of medical marijuana use for minors.

  • Be a legal resident (permanent or seasonal) of the state
  • Be diagnosed with any of the qualifying conditions, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and Crohn’s disease.

The diagnosis for the qualifying conditions must be conducted by a qualified physician. Approval and certification as a medical marijuana cardholder is left to state-licensed medical marijuana doctors. You will be required to make follow-up appointments with your medical marijuana doctor at least once every 7 months. Telehealth platforms such as MDBerry provide a convenient way to do these consultations with physicians.

 If you meet the set criteria, the physician will recommend you for a medical marijuana card. You can then use this recommendation, along with your ID, proof of residency, and the required application fee to apply for your card on the state’s website.

If approved, the state will authorize and activate your application. You will be notified by email and can start buying medical marijuana, even before you get your physical card in the mail. The staff at the state-licensed dispensary need only look up your active listing in the state’s database.

While you can purchase medical cannabis from a licensed dispensary with your MMJ card, the state of Florida does not currently allow you to grow your own marijuana even with the card.
