Buying Medical Marijuana in Florida
If your card is approved, you will receive it in the mail and may use it for one year to purchase marijuana from any licensed dispensary in the state including Trulieve in Edgewater and CertifiedMarijuanaDoctors.com in Longwood. The professional staff at the dispensary will verify your ID and find out more about your condition so they can recommend non-smoked forms of marijuana such as vapes, oils, and sprays. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under state law. You may purchase your products on-site and begin your treatment immediately.

Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
To qualify to legally purchase and use medical marijuana in the state, you must be at least 18 years old and a legal resident. You must also have one of the conditions that qualifies under state law. These include cancer, post-traumatic stress disorder, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, epilepsy, and similar conditions that cause chronic non malignant pain. Terminal conditions also qualify for medical cannabis use. To start the qualification process, you must have an in-person appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. He or she will go through your medical history and records to determine more about your condition and prior attempts you have made to treat it. If he or she believes you meet the criteria, a written recommendation will be issued. You can use this recommendation to apply for an ID card with the Florida Department of Health.
