LaBelle Medical Marijuana
Do you live in LaBelle, Florida and have a chronic health condition that could be treated with medical marijuana? If so, you may benefit from newly updated state laws.
Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
To qualify for medical marijuana use in Florida, you must be 18 years of age or older and be a legal resident of the state. You must also have one of the qualifying chronic health conditions such as ALS, HIV/AIDS, cancer, or a terminal condition. Your condition must be verified by a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go through your health history and determine what other methods of treatment you have tried in the past. If this doctor deems you a good candidate for treatment with medical marijuana, he or she will issue you a written recommendation that can be used to apply for a state-issued ID card with the Florida Department of Health. Without this ID card, you will not be able to legally purchase medical marijuana.
Buying Medical Marijuana in Florida
If you are approved by the state, you will receive your ID card in the mail within 30 days. This card is good for one year and may be renewed at another appointment with your medical marijuana doctor. The card allows you to legally purchase marijuana from any licensed dispensary in the state including Knox Medical and Trulieve in Fort Myers. When you visit the dispensary, show your ID card to the knowledgeable staff and tell them about your health concerns and goals for using medical marijuana. They will then be able to recommend and sell you non-smoked types of marijuana such as pills, vapes, and edibles. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida state law.
