Homestead Medical Marijuana
As one of 30 U.S. states that has legalized medical marijuana, Florida now allows Homestead residents to qualify for the drug if they meet certain criteria.
Buying Medical Marijuana in Florida
If you are approved by the state, you will receive your ID card within 30 days and may use it for one year to legally purchase medical marijuana from any licensed dispensary in Florida. The nearest dispensaries to Homestead are Curaleaf and Cannabis Education Centers in Kendall. When you visit the dispensary, the professional staff will verify your ID and talk to you about your health condition, symptoms, and expectations for using medical marijuana. They will also determine if you have any other lifestyle considerations that would affect your marijuana use. This will help them recommend the right types, strains, and doses of non-smoked medical marijuana. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida law. You can purchase marijuana directly from the dispensary and take it home with you that day.

Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
To qualify for medical marijuana purchase and use, you must be 18 years old or over and a legal resident of Florida. You must also have one of the qualifying debilitating health conditions such as cancer, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder, or HIV/AIDS. This condition must be verified at an in-person appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor in your area. In addition to verifying your condition, the doctor will also go over your medical records to fully understand your symptoms and to find out what other forms of treatment you have tried. If the doctor determines that you qualify for medical marijuana, he or she will write you a recommendation that you will need to apply for a state-issued ID card with the Florida Department of Health.
