How Do I Buy Medical Marijuana?
With your ID, you may legally purchase medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state. The nearest dispensaries to Largo are Trulieve and Knox Medical, both in Clearwater. When you visit the dispensary, show the staff your ID and tell them more about your condition, symptoms, and any lifestyle considerations that may affect your treatment. The staff will recommend non-smoked versions of marijuana including edibles, topicals, and oils for your treatment plan. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida state law. You may purchase your product directly from the dispensary and take it home with you that day.
If you live in Largo and have a difficult to treat medical condition that could be treated with medical marijuana, schedule an appointment with a licensed doctor today to find out if you qualify.
How Do I Qualify for Medical Marijuana?
Qualifying for medical marijuana in Florida is a straightforward and relatively simple process. First, you must be at least 18 years old and a legal resident of the state. Second, you must have one of the conditions deemed legally treatable by medical marijuana. These conditions include cancer, post-traumatic stress disorder, ALS, and conditions that cause chronic non-malignant pain. If you feel you would qualify and are interested in learning more, you need to schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. This doctor will look into your health history to find out more about your condition, your symptoms, and your attempts at treating the condition in the past. If the doctor believes you are a good candidate for medical marijuana treatment, he or she will issue a written recommendation. You need this recommendation to apply for a state-issued ID with the Florida Department of Health.
