How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Florida

Book An Appointment

Schedule your appointment with DocMJ on a day and time that is convenient for you. This is a no-risk appointment, we provide a 100% money-back guarantee if you do not qualify.

Meet With a Doctor

The State of Florida requires that all patients visit a doctor in person to complete the health evaluation. We have thirty offices located across Florida. A friendly DocMJ doctor will consult with you and talk about your symptoms, medications, and wellness goals. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how mmj can improve your life.

Get Approved

When approved, you will receive a recommendation for mmj. The physician will upload the recommendation to the Florida Department of Health, OMMU. Recommendations are entered into the registry on the same day. In some cases, patients may be able to purchase mmj the same day following their appointment. Your medical card will arrive by mail approximately 10-15 days after you have been certified by the doctor and apply to the State.

Florida's Medical Marijuana History


In 2014, Florida joined twenty-one other states in legalizing medical marijuana with the signing of the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014. This allowed low-THC medical cannabis products to be recommended to those suffering from cancer, chronic seizures, epilepsy, or muscle spasms, so long as that recommendation came from a licensed medical marijuana doctor. Then, in 2016, voters in the State of Florida approved the Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative (Amendment 2), legalizing the use of full strength marijuana for qualifying medical conditions, with the requirement that a licensed medical marijuana doctor approve the patient. Since then, more changes to the law have been made. Having a medical marijuana evaluation done by marijuana doctors throughout the state will allow you to obtain a medical marijuana card, satisfying Florida state law and protecting you from potential legal consequences.

Definition of Medical Marijuana in the State of Florida


Simply put, the state defines medical marijuana or medical cannabis as products which are purchased at a licensed dispensary (or medical marijuana treatment center) by a qualified patient with a medical marijuana card. Acquiring marijuana from a source other than a state recognized dispensary will mean that your cannabis is not considered 'medical marijuana' and therefore subject to your city's laws towards possession and is a crime under Florida law.

Proof of Residence Requirement for Medical Marijuana Treatment


For permanent Florida residents, they may provide any form of state-approved forms of identification to prove their residency. Whereas seasonal residents or temporary residents can submit a copy of two of the following to prove residence:

  • A monthly mortgage statement, deed, mortgage, residential rental or lease agreement

  • A proof of residential address from a parent, step-parent, legal guardian, or a person who the seasonal resident lives with along with a statement confirming the claim is true

  • A utility bill or work order

  • Mail addressed to seasonal resident from either a financial institution (a checking, savings, investment account statement), or a federal, state, or municipal government agency no older than two months

Purchasing Medical Marijuana in the State of Florida


Once you have been approved and received your Florida medical marijuana card, you are eligible to legally purchase medical marijuana, but only from approved facilities. These facilities, otherwise known as Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers, or more commonly dispensaries, exist throughout the state. The classification of medical only applies when you purchase medical cannabis from one of these approved or licensed dispensaries. In order to purchase from any of these facilities, your information must be sent to the OMMU by a licensed and certified marijuana doctor. Without this, you cannot purchase cannabis products. While medical marijuana doctors will recommend medical marijuana treatment dosage and routes, there is no requirement for a specific recommendation of where to purchase cannabis. There are directories available to find dispensaries which will take Florida medical marijuana cards for any qualifying conditions.

Employment with Medical Marijuana


While the State of Florida has permitted the use of medical marijuana, the laws do not extend to employers within the state. At this time it is up to the employer whether or not they will accept your medical marijuana card and therefore permit usage of medical cannabis or low THC cannabis. Employers may still require employees to submit drug tests, and deem the presence of marijuana as failure to pass these tests. When in doubt, it is best to be aware of your employer's stance on marijuana use, because they may not distinguish the difference between medical or recreational marijuana use.

I highly recommend DocMJ and Dr. Derkaz. My quality of life has improved significantly since I started cannabis treatments. It was easy to get an appointment and the payment plans made it possible for me to start treatment right away. For quick, efficient, and caring service I would recommend no other.

Response from the owner: Hello John! Thank you for your feedback! We're glad to hear that the renewal process was comfortable and complication-free. Your appreciation means a lot to us! Beautiful photo, thank you for sharing!
Dr. Boyett is great! He listened to my needs and actually cared! Easy to talk to!I've used other medical marijuana patient onboarding companies and DocMJ is by far the best!DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT go to “expressmarijuanacard” aka “EMC”.. They were sketchy as heck and treated you like you were a beggar much less their patient. Dr. Lopez told me “Do not call or text me asking for increases”, well, I have a medical issue where I can't do flower or anything with “smoke” as it irritates my lung which was injured in a scuba diving accident 10 years ago.. So I needed a customized plan to get what I needed and DocMJ provided that! DocMJ actually wants to listen to your specific needs and not treat you like you're a criminal. I have a feeling the EMC people cater to “patients” who aren't in it for their medicinal needs but rather recreational. I mean when you meet Dr. Lopez with EMC, you literally meet him in a parking lot behind the sketchiest dispensary nobody goes to. Dr. Lopez didn't even ask me what I needed, just gave me the standardized dosage and washed his hands with me.Long story short, lol….YOU WONT REGRET GOING TO DocMJ! They are super professional, respectful, and actually have a doctors office you go into for your first appointment.Dr. Boyett,Thanks for caring!
Response from the owner: Hello Dean! Thank you for sharing your detailed experience! We're thrilled to hear that Dr. Boyett listened to your needs and provided the care you required. We appreciate your kind words about DocMJ and are glad we could offer a professional and respectful experience. Your recommendation means a lot to us!
