How Do I Qualify for Medical Marijuana?
If you’re interested in qualifying for medical marijuana usage, you must meet several conditions. First, you must be at least 18 years of age. Second, you must be a legal resident of the state of Florida. Finally, you must have an in-person meeting with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who can determine if you suffer from one of the conditions that can be treated with marijuana. These include post-traumatic stress disorder, HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s disease, or a condition causing chronic non malignant pain. If the doctor believes you would benefit from the use of medical marijuana, he or she will write a recommendation that can be used to apply for an ID card with the Florida Department of Health. Your card will arrive within 30 days in the mail and can be used to purchase marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state. The card is good for one year and may be renewed by scheduling a follow-up meeting with your doctor.
