Hollywood Medical Marijuana
Residents of Hollywood Florida who have chronic medical conditions they have found difficult to treat may be able to qualify for medical marijuana treatment under newly updated Florida laws.
How to Qualify for Medical Marijuana Use
As one of 30 states to legalize medical marijuana, Florida makes qualifying for the legal use of the drug a relatively straightforward one. Those who are interested in qualifying must be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of Florida. They must also have one of the qualifying health conditions which include epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, those causing chronic non-malignant pain, or similar debilitating conditions that a physician believes can be treated with medical marijuana. If you think you qualify, you must schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. The doctor will go through your medical history to determine what type of condition you have, what your symptoms are, and what you have done in the past to treat it. If the doctor deems you a good candidate for medical marijuana use, he or she will write you a recommendation that can then be used to apply for a state-issued ID card from the Florida Department of Health.
How to Buy Medical Marijuana
If you are approved, you will receive your ID card in the mail within 30 days and may use it to legally purchase non-smoked forms of medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state. Dispensaries nearest to Hollywood are Knox Medical and Curaleaf in Fort Lauderdale. The staff at the dispensary will verify your ID and then look into your medical history to determine what your symptoms are and will ask about your goals for using a medical marijuana treatment plan. This will help them recommend types, strains, and doses of marijuana for your unique needs. Forms of medical marijuana such as oils, vapes, and edibles can be purchased directly from the dispensary.
If you have a debilitating medical condition that you have found difficult to treat, consider scheduling an appointment with a medical marijuana doctor to see if the drug is right for you.
