You must be a Florida resident. Seasonal residents (snowbirds) who are registered to vote in another state but live in Florida for at least 31 consecutive days every year are eligible. You must be examined in person by a qualified doctor who has completed a medical marijuana certification course. The doctor determines the correct dosage and usage for your condition.
The doctor registers you in the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry so you can receive a medical marijuana card. This card must be presented, along with your driver’s license or other photo ID, whenever you pick up a medical marijuana prescription.
A certified doctor can give you a 70-day prescription, plus two refills. Every 210 days, you must return to be re-examined by the doctor.
THERE IS NO WAITING PERIOD TO QUALIFY FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA
