Buying Medical Marijuana in Florida
Your ID card will arrive within 30 days of approval and can be used to buy medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state. Dispensaries near St. Pete Beach include Knox Medical and Trulieve in St. Petersburg. The professional dispensary staff will verify your ID and learn more about your medical condition and symptoms so they can recommend the best types of marijuana for your needs. Though smoking marijuana is illegal under state law, you may purchase it in forms such as edibles, pills, and oils.

Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
If you are over 18 years of age and a legal resident of the state, you may qualify if you have a chronic medical condition such as ALS, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s, or cancer. Terminal conditions and those that cause chronic non malignant pain may also qualify. To legally purchase marijuana, you must first have an in-person meeting with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go through your health history and find out more about your condition and what you have done to treat it in the past. If he or she believes you would make a good medical cannabis patient, a written recommendation will be issued. This needs to be included with your application for a medical marijuana ID card from the Florida Department of Health. You may not purchase marijuana legally in the state without an ID card.
