A medical marijuana card is a photo ID card issued by the Florida Department of Health. When you go to a medical marijuana treatment center, you must provide a Medical Marijuana Use Registry identification card to obtain medical marijuana, or a marijuana delivery device. The card may also be used to verify that a patient or legal representative is in the Department of Health’s Medical Marijuana Use Registry.
Once your doctor has registered you with the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry, you can apply for a medical marijuana card. You will receive an email with a link to fill out the application on the Office of Compassionate Use website. Your application will be reviewed and, if approved, a medical marijuana card will be sent to you through the mail.
Allow 30 days for the review of your application. There is a $75 application fee.
Medical marijuana cards expire after one year, and must be renewed. To avoid delays in filling your medical marijuana orders, apply for the renewal 45 days before your card expires.
Note: Recent advertising promising a medical marijuana card for a fee are a scam. You can only receive a card by going through the registration process with a qualified physician, and then applying online.
