How The Florida Medical Marijuana Program Works


To begin the process, a patient must have an in-person visit with our certified physicians. Our physicians are well versed in the Compassionate Use and Amendment 2 Law to provide compassionate medical care for patients seeking their Medical Green Card in Florida.

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 our physician, our dedicated staff will help you file for your medical marijuana ID card application with the Florida Department of Health.

When the Florida Department of Health 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. Your medical records are kept private and are protected by HIPPA compliance laws.

The law requires patients to have a follow-up in office evaluation for re-certification each 210 days. The physician can certify up to a 70-day supply of cannabis at a time.
