Buying Medical Marijuana
If you are approved by the state, you will receive your ID card in the mail within 30 days. This ID card allows you to legally purchase medical marijuana from any licensed dispensary in the state such as Surterra Wellness in Tampa and Medical Marijuana Treatment Clinics of Florida in Lakeland. The staff at the dispensary will verify your ID and learn more about your condition so they can recommend the proper doses, types, and strains of medical marijuana for your unique treatment plan. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida state law, but the dispensary can sell you marijuana in other forms such as edibles, oils, and vapes.
If you have a difficult to treat medical condition that qualifies for medical marijuana treatment, you may be able to legally purchase and use the drug. To start the process, schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor today.
Qualifying for Medical Marijuana
As one of 30 states that has legalized medical marijuana, Florida makes it relatively straightforward to qualify for buying the drug. Those interested must be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of Florida. They must also have a condition such as epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder, or ALS that can be successfully treated with marijuana. If you meet these criteria, you next need to schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor near you. The doctor will go over your health history to determine details about your condition including symptoms and other methods of treatment you have attempted in the past. If the doctor decides you qualify, he or she will issue a written recommendation that you can use to apply for an ID card with the Florida Department of Health.
