Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
To qualify to legally purchase and use medical marijuana in the state of Florida, you must be at least 18 years of age and a legal resident. You must also have one of the qualifying chronic medical conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, or glaucoma. If you believe you qualify, set up an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go through your health history and determine what condition you suffer from, what symptoms it causes, and what attempts you have made at treating the condition in the past. If they deem you to be a good candidate for medical marijuana treatment, they will issue a written recommendation that you will need to apply for a state-issued ID card. Your application must be sent to the Florida Department of Health. If approved, you should receive your ID card within 30 days of application.
Where Do I Buy Medical Marijuana in Florida?
Your ID card, which is valid for one year, can be used to legally purchase medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state including DoctorsRx Medical Marijuana Centers in Fort Pierce or DocMJ in Vero Beach. Once you have chosen a dispensary, you can work with the professional staff to develop a medical marijuana treatment plan that is right for you. The staff will be able to sell you forms of medical marijuana such as edibles, oils, and vapes to use in your treatment plan. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida law.
Medical marijuana has helped thousands of people deal with chronic, difficult to treat medical conditions. If you believe medical marijuana treatment is right for you, schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor to begin the qualification process.
