How do you get a medical marijuana card in Florida?


Good news- Florida passed a medical marijuana law in 2016! Unfortunately, it is not yet operational.

Qualifying conditions in Florida are as follows: -Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's disease -Cancer -Crohn's disease -Epilepsy -Glaucoma -HIV/AIDS -Multiple sclerosis (MS) -Parkinson's disease -Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) -Seizures -Terminal illness (patients diagnosed as having 12 months or less to live) -other debilitating medical conditions

Patients will need to obtain a physician's recommendation confirming they have one of the qualifying conditions. They will then be able to legally obtain cannabis from a state-licensed dispensary; although there are not any currently operating in the state. The amounts of marijuana that patients are allowed to possess have yet to be determined.
