How Do I Qualify for Medical Marijuana?
If you are over 18 years old and a legal resident of the state, you may be able to qualify for medical marijuana use if you have a chronic health condition. Those conditions that are commonly treated with cannabis include ALS, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and Crohn’s disease. The next step in qualifying is to schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go through your health records and determine if your condition qualifies and what you have done in the past to treat it. If you meet all the doctor’s conditions, he or she will give you a written recommendation that you can use to apply for a state-issued ID with the Florida Department of Health. Once your application is approved, you will receive your ID card in the mail and you may use it for up to one year to purchase medical cannabis.
