How Do I Buy Medical Marijuana in Florida?
Once you are approved and receive your ID card, you can use it to legally purchase medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state. Nearby dispensaries include Trulieve and Cannabis Education Centers in Ft. Myers. Tell the dispensary staff more about your medical condition, how the symptoms affect your daily life, and any lifestyle concerns that may impact your treatment. They will then be able to direct you to the right non-smoked forms of marijuana including vapes, pills, and edibles. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under state law.
If you believe medical marijuana could be a good treatment option for you, schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor today.
Do I Qualify for Medical Marijuana in Florida?
If you are over 18 and a legal resident of Florida, you may qualify to use medical marijuana to treat your chronic health condition. Qualifying conditions include those that cause chronic non malignant pain and terminal conditions. Specific conditions that can be legally treated with cannabis include ALS, HIV/AIDS, cancer, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. If you believe you meet these conditions, you must schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go through your health history to learn more about your condition and your attempts at treating it. If the doctor believes you would make a good medical marijuana patient, he or she will issue a written recommendation. This must be included with your application for a state-issued ID card with the Florida Department of Health.
