I have a medical card from California and it only costs $50/year. Why is Florida more expensive? 2016-11-09T07:19:11+00:00

In the state of Florida, marijuana physicians cannot simply write a 1 year recommendation in a one-time appointment, they must re-issue the recommendation itself every 45 days. This means a LOT more work for physicians, and more time that they must spend on every patient. As with everything, when those costs go up, the price has to as well.
