How Can I Buy Medical Marijuana?
With your ID card, you can buy medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state including Knox Medical and DocMJ in Clearwater. The professional staff at the dispensary will verify your ID and ask you questions about your condition, symptoms, and any lifestyle concerns that may affect your treatment.

Do I Qualify for Medical Marijuana?
Florida has made it legal for those who qualify to purchase and use medical marijuana to treat a chronic health condition. To qualify, you must be 18 or over, a legal resident of the state, and have one of the conditions deemed treatable by cannabis under state law. These include ALS, HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s disease, cancer, and similar conditions causing chronic non malignant pain. To verify your eligibility, you must have an in-person appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go through your health records and find out what you have tried in the past to treat your condition. If the doctor believes you would make a good medical cannabis patient, he or she will issue a written recommendation that you can use to apply for an ID card with the Florida Department of Health. Your card, once approved, will arrive in the mail within 30 days.
