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.

This was my first visit at Doc MJ. Yeah I was a little nervous upon arrival but I typically am always nervous at any doctors appointment for the first time.

He Ask the right questions to get all the details he needs to be able to get me a recommendation for the state to approve me. I highly recommend for you to check them out.

If you’re look for a doctor that takes his time and actually listens to what you have to say then Doctor Mars is the doctor for you. He takes time to find out what is going on and you don’t feel rushed. When I first went to doc mjs, I was having chronic back pain due to herniated disc and buldging discs. The doctor is very knowledgeable and advised me of different methods that may help. 7months later and my quality of life is so much better. Due to being pain free I’m able to incorporate a low impact workout into my daily routine which helped me to loose weight. Overall very happy and would definitely recommend 🙂

Doc Mars at DOCMJ is the only place I got for MMJ certification and prescriptions. I’ve been with him since Florida’s MMJ program started and he listens carefully, makes suggestions to treat my PTSD, anxiety, depression, pain and migraines from numerous military injuries. He helped me get on a program that took me from barely walking and being in constant pain to living a fulfilling life! Thank God for Floridas MMJ program, DOCMJ and Doctor Mars!!! And he loves helping vets and everyone for that matter. Hands down this is the guy I’d send anyone to!

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?
