Lake Mary Medical Marijuana
Those residents of Lake Mary, Florida who have a difficult to treat chronic medical condition may now benefit from newly updated Florida laws regarding medical marijuana.
How Can I Qualify for Medical Marijuana?
Florida is one of 30 states in the U.S. that has legalized medical marijuana for those who meet qualifications. If you are interested, you need to be at least 18 years of age and a legal resident of Florida. You must also have one of the qualifying medical conditions that include HIV/AIDS, cancer, post-traumatic stress disorder, and epilepsy. The next step is to meet with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who can go over your health history and determine what condition you suffer from, what symptoms impact your daily life, and what attempts you have made in the past to treat the condition. If the doctor determines that you qualify, he or she will issue a written recommendation to be sent in with your application for a state-issued ID card with the Florida Department of Health. On approval, you will be mailed an ID card that allows you to legally purchase medical marijuana from a licensed dispensary in the state for up to one year. You may renew your ID card by having a follow-up appointment with your doctor.
How Can I Buy Medical Marijuana?
Your ID card allows you to choose any licensed dispensary in Florida including Cubano M.D. in Lake Mary and Curaleaf in Orlando. To buy marijuana, simply bring in your ID card and meet with the professional staff members at the dispensary of your choice. They will help you find the right doses, strains, and types of medical marijuana that will work best for you. Under Florida law, you may not purchase any type of marijuana that can be smoked, but you can purchase forms such as pills, vapes, and topicals.
If you have a chronic medical condition that you have been unsuccessful in treating, you may qualify for medical marijuana use. Schedule an appointment with a licensed doctor today to find out more.
