FLORIDA RECOMMENDATION REQUIREMENTS:
Applicants must be a permanent or seasonal resident (minimum 31-day lease) of the State of Florida and must have one of Florida’s qualifying conditions in order to be eligible for an MMJ card. There is no age limit for qualification, although minors incur additional requirements in order to be registered (as noted below).
Qualifying Medical Conditions:
FLORIDA RECOMMENDATION PROCESS:
1. FIND A QUALIFYING PHYSICIAN WHO WILL RECOMMEND CANNABIS TO YOU UNDER ONE OF FLORIDA’S QUALIFYING CONDITIONS. Not all physicians are certified to recommend MMJ in the State of Florida.
2.GO TO YOUR APPOINTMENT AND RECEIVE YOUR RECOMMENDATION. Your qualifying physician will enter you into the “Medical Marijuana Use Registry” and will provide you with your Patient ID Number.
3. SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION WITH ID & PROOF OF RESIDENCY. You will receive an email from the State with your login credentials for the Medical Marijuana Use Registry and will need the Patient ID Number provided to you by your qualifying physician to login. It is highly recommended that you complete your application online, but you may also send your application by mail to the Office of Medical Marijuana Use, PO Box 31313, Tampa, FL, 33631-3313.
4. SUBMIT PAYMENT. Upon completion of your application, submit $75 online or by check or money order made out to the Florida Department of Health.
5. RECEIVE YOUR MMJ CARD. By law, you cannot posses MMJ at any time without also having your MMJ card/ caregiver card in your possession as well.
6. SHOP FOR YOUR MMJ PRODUCTS. You must purchase all MMJ and products used to administer/ consume cannabis from licensed MMTCs.
You must visit your qualifying physician for recertification in the system every 210 days, and you must submit a renewal to the State annually (recommended to submit at least 45 days prior to expiration).
MMJ must be kept in the containers in which it was purchased at all times when not being administered/ consumed.
You should be able to show proof of purchase of all MMJ products as well as products used to administer/ consume MMJ at all times.
Public consumption is illegal in the State of Florida.
Florida does not take part in reciprocity programs (meaning MMJ may not enter from outside nor exit from inside Florida).
Although autism is not specifically listed in the qualifying conditions, there are physicians who will recommend under the "same class or kind" or PTSD categories.
