Buying Medical Marijuana
Licensed dispensaries near you include Trulieve in Bradenton and SAR Medical Institute in Port Charlotte. Take your ID card in to the dispensary so the professional staff can verify it, then tell them more about your condition and your goals for using medical marijuana. This will help them recommend the right types of non-smoked marijuana for your treatment plan. Smoking marijuana is illegal under state law, but you may purchase cannabis in other forms such as edibles, pills, and sprays. You may make your purchases on-site and start using them the same day.
Do you have a chronic medical condition that you have had difficulty treating in the past? If so, medical marijuana may be the right choice for you. Schedule an appointment with a licensed doctor today to find out more.
Qualifying for Medical Marijuana Use
Those who are at least 18 years old and legal residents of Florida may qualify if they have a condition such as ALS, glaucoma, epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder, or another condition that greatly affects their daily life. To start the process, you must visit a licensed medical marijuana doctor in the state who can verify your condition and go through your health history to determine what other forms of treatment you have tried. If deemed appropriate, the doctor will issue a written recommendation that can be used to apply for a state-issued ID card with the Florida Department of health. If approved, your card will arrive in the mail within 30 days and allows you to legally purchase marijuana from any licensed dispensary in the state.
