Buying Medical Marijuana
Once you have received your ID, you can use it to purchase non-smoked varieties of marijuana from any licensed dispensary in the state including Curaleaf in Fort Lauderdale and DoctorsRx Medical Marijuana Centers in Coral Springs. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida state law. When you visit a dispensary, the helpful staff will ask questions to learn more about your medical condition and your goals for using marijuana in your treatment plan. This will help them develop a treatment plan that may include edibles, oils, or vapes to best treat your condition.
A chronic medical condition can have a number of negative consequences as it relates to your job, your relationships, and your overall quality of life. If you’d like to see if you qualify to use medical marijuana in your treatment plan, schedule an appointment with a nearby licensed doctor today.
Qualifying for Medical Marijuana
There are a number of licensed medical marijuana doctors in the state of Florida who can meet with you and determine if you are a candidate for the drug’s legal use. Common conditions that are treated with marijuana include Parkinson’s, post-traumatic stress disorder, ALS, and cancer. Your doctor will go through your health history to determine the nature of your condition, the symptoms you experience, and the other types of treatments you have tried. If he or she believes you are a good candidate for medical marijuana, a written recommendation will be issued. This recommendation must be sent in with your application for a state-issued ID to the Florida Department of Health. If you are approved, your card will arrive in the mail within 30 days and is valid for one year. Your ID is renewable by having a follow-up appointment with your doctor.
