How to Qualify for Medical Marijuana
If you are at least 18 years old and a legal resident of Florida, you may be able to use medical marijuana to treat a condition that causes chronic non malignant pain or is terminal. Conditions such as epilepsy, ALS, multiple sclerosis, and glaucoma qualify under state law. To verify your condition and eligibility, you must schedule an in-person appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. He or she will go over your medical history and determine what condition you suffer from as well as your symptoms and prior attempts at treatment. If the doctor believes you would make a good medical cannabis patient, a written recommendation will be issued. This must be included with your application for an ID card with the Florida Department of Health.
