HOW DOES THE WHOLE PROCESS WORK?
Individuals suffering from chronic and debilitating illnesses are eligible to receive medical cannabis within the state of Florida. To begin the process a patient must have an in-person visit with a Florida physician who is certified in compassionate use. In order to provide certifications to patients, a doctor must have an active, unrestricted medical license and must complete a course issued by the Florida Medical Association. Once the physician has examined the patient, he or she can qualify (or “certify”) them to be able to purchase medical marijuana. After a patient is certified by a physician they must complete a medical marijuana ID card application with the Department of Health. When the Department approves the patient’s ID card application, the patient is legally then able to visit any of the state’s dispensaries or call a Medical Marijuana Treatment Center to arrange for delivery.
The law requires patients to be re-certified every 210 days, and the physician can certify up to a 70-day supply of cannabis at a time at a maximum daily dose that is yet to be determined by the Department of Health.

Medical Marijuana Fraud
Medical marijuana doctors should uphold the same standards as your primary care physicians or any other doctor you would trust to care for your health. Medical marijuana doctors are required to practice medicine in full and complete compliance with established legally mandated practice standards. However, the medical marijuana industry is unfortunately plagued with fraudulent doctors who write invalid medical marijuana recommendations or marijuana prescriptions. This means that seeing the wrong doctor could potentially put you in legal jeopardy. Learn more about Medical marijuana Fraud.
