Key Biscayne Medical Marijuana
Are you a resident of Key Biscayne, Florida, and interested in using medical marijuana to treat a debilitating health condition? If so, you may benefit from the newly updated state medical marijuana laws.
Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
As one of 30 U.S. states that has legalized medical marijuana, Florida makes qualifying for marijuana use a relatively straightforward process. First, you must be at least 18 years of age and a legal resident of the state. Second, you must have one of the qualifying health conditions such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s disease, or ALS. If you meet these qualifications, you need to schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will thoroughly evaluate your medical history and determine what your condition is and what other attempts you have made to treat it. If he or she believes you would benefit from medical marijuana use, a written recommendation will be issued. This recommendation, along with the proper forms, can be sent to the Florida Department of Health to request a state-issued ID card that you need to purchase medical marijuana.
Buying Medical Marijuana in Florida
If approved, you will receive your ID card within 30 days and may use it to purchase marijuana at any licensed dispensary in Florida. Nearby dispensaries include Curaleaf, Trulieve, and Knox Medical, all in Miami. Simply show the staff your ID card and tell them about your medical condition and goals for using medical marijuana. You should also tell them about any lifestyle considerations that may affect your treatment plan. The staff can then recommend the proper types, strains, and doses of marijuana for you. In Florida, it is still illegal to smoke marijuana, but you will be able to purchase it in forms such as oils, edibles, and vapes.
