Eustis Medical Marijuana
Are you a resident of Eustis, Florida and have a chronic medical condition that could be treated with medical marijuana? If so, you may benefit from newly updated Florida laws.
Finding Out if You Qualify for Medical Marijuana
Medical marijuana in Florida can be legally used to treat conditions such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, ALS, and those causing chronic, non-malignant pain. To ensure your condition qualifies, you must meet with a licensed medical marijuana doctor in your area. The doctor will go over your medical history and determine the details of your condition, your symptoms, and what efforts you have made in the past to treat the condition. If he or she deems you a good candidate for treatment with medical marijuana, a written recommendation will be issued. This recommendation needs to be included with your application for a state-issued ID card from the Florida Department of Health. If approved, your ID card should arrive within 30 days and is valid for one year. Your card can be renewed by meeting again with your medical marijuana doctor.
Finding Where to Buy Medical Marijuana
With your ID card, you can legally purchase medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state. Those closest to Eustis are Trulieve in The Villages and Cannabis Education Centers in Summerfield. When you visit the dispensary, the professional staff will verify your ID and ask you questions about your condition, your current symptoms, and other lifestyle considerations that may impact your treatment. They will then be able to help you create a treatment plan using non-smoked forms of marijuana such as edibles, oils, and vapes. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida law.
If you are at least 18 years of age, are a legal resident of Florida, and have a condition that could be treated with medical marijuana, you may qualify to legally use and buy the drug. Meet with a licensed medical marijuana doctor in your area to find out for sure.
