Purchasing Medical Marijuana
Your card, when approved, will arrive within 30 days and can be used to legally purchase medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state. Dispensaries near Pinecrest include Marijuana Doctor in Miami and Curaleaf in Kendall. Take you ID card into the dispensary and tell the staff more about your condition, symptoms, and any lifestyle concerns that may affect your treatment. This will allow them to recommend the right non-smoked types of marijuana for your needs. Smoking marijuana is illegal under state law, but you may purchase it in forms such as oils, pills, and vapes. You may make your purchases directly from the dispensary that day.

Qualifying for Medical Marijuana
To qualify, you must be at least 18 years old and a legal resident of the state. You must also have one of the conditions that qualifies under state law. These include any terminal condition and conditions that cause chronic non malignant pain. Common conditions treated with medical cannabis include cancer, ALS, Crohn’s disease, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The next step is to schedule an in-person appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go through your health history to verify your condition and determine that you have attempted other methods of treatment. If you are approved, a written recommendation will be issued that can be used to apply for a state-issued ID card from the Florida Department of Health.
