Who is Eligible for Medical Marijuana in the State of Florida?

Speaking with our Florida medical marijuana doctors, you will discuss your particular situation and need, but there are two general requirements for any patient to be given a medical marijuana recommendation and obtain a card from the State: You must be either a permanent or temporary resident within the State of Florida to both receive and maintain your MMJ card from the state. This card is utilized at medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the state, and will only work in Florida dispensaries. Cards issued in other states may not apply, nor may a card issued in Florida apply in other states. You must be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition by a certified doctor. Beyond the enumerated list below, the law allows a terminal condition diagnosed by a physician, or other debilitating conditions of like, kind, or class such as depression, anxiety, and migraines.

Will My Florida Medical Marijuana Card Work Anywhere in the State?

Florida patients who have received their Florida medical cannabis card may purchase at any state-licensed dispensary. Regardless if your card was issued by medical marijuana doctors in Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, or anywhere within the State of Florida, as a Florida resident you would qualify to purchase medical marijuana.

Can I Travel Across State Lines With Marijuana If I Have A Card?

As of now, No. Federal law prohibits carrying marijuana across state lines. It would be considered drug trafficking.

Can I Use My Florida Medical Marijuana Card in Other States?

While medical marijuana remains a Schedule I narcotic at the federal level it has been legalized for some states. Many have agreements between them to allow out-of-state medical marijuana cards. This is known as “reciprocity.” Florida does not yet offer reciprocity, that is, those with out-of-state medical marijuana cards cannot use them in Florida. However, Floridians can use a medical marijuana card in some other states with certain guidelines. Read on to learn which states allow the use of your Florida medical marijuana card. Read more here.

Are Medical Records for Medical Marijuana Private?

The Florida Department of Health branch known as the Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) has strict power over the online registry, giving access only to your marijuana doctors, law enforcement, dispensary staff, and the Florida Department of Health itself. Within your private Florida medical record, your registry entry has both your qualifying medical condition, or multiple qualifying conditions, and the recommended amount and method of medical marijuana provided by your doctor.
