Medical Marijuana Purchase Details
When your ID card arrives in the mail, you can use it to legally purchase marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state including Knox Medical and Curaleaf in Fort Lauderdale. Once you have chosen a dispensary, show the staff your ID card and tell them more about your medical condition. The staff will be able to recommend the right doses, strains, and types of medical marijuana. Though smoking marijuana is still illegal under state law, you may purchase it in forms such as sprays, edibles, pills, or topicals.

Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
Florida is one of 30 states that has legalized medical marijuana for those who qualify. You must be 18 years of age or older, a legal resident of the state, and have a condition that is debilitating to your daily life to qualify. Approved conditions include ALS, post-traumatic stress disorder. HIV/AIDS, cancer, and epilepsy. Other conditions that cause chronic non malignant pain may also qualify. To become qualified, you must schedule an in-person appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go over your health history and determine more about your condition and what you have done to treat it in the past. If the doctor believes you would make a good medical cannabis patient, a written recommendation will be issued. This needs to be included in your application for a state-issued ID card with the Florida Department of Health.
