How To Get A Medical Marijuana Card In Florida

Evaluation


First, you’ll need to be evaluated by a medical marijuana physician that is qualified to order medical marijuana. This includes making an in person visit to the physician’s office. Once you are there you’ll be required to fill out a few standard forms that will be made part of your medical record. The physician will then complete a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine if medical marijuana may benefit you.

Recommendation


Second, once the physician determines that your chronic condition meets the Florida Department of Health requirements for medical marijuana use he or she will make a recommendation for medical marijuana use and establish a medical care plan on your behalf. This is similar to writing a prescription.

Registration


Third, now that you have been recommended for medical marijuana use the physician must register your name and information with the Florida Department of Health’s Compassionate Use data base. This will allow you to obtain your medical marijuana from a dispensary licensed by the Florida Department of Health.

How much does it costs for the first visit?

$195 certification visit – the Florida department of health requires patients to be certified for the use of medical marijuana every 210 days (7 months). If you have a qualifying medical condition, your initial visit will include certification and you will be required to complete a certification visit every 7 months thereafter.

The department of health requires all patients to complete the “medical marijuana use registry patient id card application”.
