In Florida, you can get a medical marijuana card for a minor with parental/guardian consent. A minor will need to have a caregiver listed on their application form.
Yes. The caregiver fills out their own application form, and must be listed on the patient’s application form as well. Both caregivers and patients must renew their physician’s recommendation/certification 45 days prior to the card expiration date. Those who are aged under 18 and in need of medical cannabis will be required to have a caregiver. Adults who are unable to use or purchase medical cannabis for themselves may also have a caregiver.
A qualified FL physician may recommend up to six 35-day supplies of smokable medical marijuana. A 35-day order may not exceed 2.5 ounces. Patients may only possess up to 4 ounces of medical marijuana in a form for smoking at any given time. In some circumstances, these limits may be lifted with permission. There is a limit of 10% THC on medical marijuana products.
It is not legal for a patient to grow their own cannabis plants in Florida, even if they are qualified for medical cannabis.
First of all, it is only possible to renew your medical marijuana certificate online in Florida. Those needing a brand new, initial MMJ card and medical cannabis certificate will need to speak to a physician in-person first. However, if you already have a certificate and card, you can speak to one of our doctors and renew online. The process of renewing your certificate is quite simple, and not too different from speaking to a physician in-person. In fact, in many ways, it's easier to get renewed online - you don't have to travel to a clinic, and you don't have to book an appointment, either (although you can if you want). 1. Register online and speak to a Florida-licensed physician online. You will need to give us your name, email address and telephone number. Have your ID and proof of address handy. Medical records can be helpful, too. 2. Speak to the doctor online - you will need a smartphone, laptop or desktop with a working microphone, camera and internet connection. If approved, you will have your medical cannabis certificate emailed to you. 3. Once certified, you must complete and submit your renewal application on the state website. This needs to be done 30 days before the expiration of your previous certification. 4. Once you have registered, you can legally go into and purchase medical marijuana products at a Florida dispensary.
Florida does not offer reciprocity for out-of-state medical marijuana patients, so those patients who move here with an out-of-state medical marijuana card cannot use them in Florida. You will need to apply for a Florida-specific MMJ card. The following states offer some form of medical marijuana reciprocity with out-of-state patients. – Alaska ^ – Arkansas * – California ^ – Colorado ^ – Hawaii * – Maine – Massachusetts – Michigan – Nevada – Oklahoma * – Oregon ^ – Puerto Rico – Washington ^ – Washington D.C. States marked with * require visitors to complete a visiting patient application for the duration of their stay. States marked with ^ have adult use programs but do not accept out-of-state medical cannabis cards.
You can get your medical marijuana certificate renewed via telehealth in any city in Florida. Regardless of which city you're in, recreational cannabis is illegal in Florida. Possession of up to 20 grams (3⁄4 oz) is a misdemeanor offense, punishable by up to a year in prison, a fine of up to $1000, and the suspension of one's driver's license. Some cities, however, have lessened the penalties somewhat, including: - Miami-Dade County - Broward County - Palm Beach County - Tampa - Orlando Other cities and counties that have approved decriminalization ordinances are: Miami Beach (2015), Hallandale Beach (2015), Key West (2015), West Palm Beach (2015), Volusia County (2016), Osceola County (2016), Alachua County (2016), Port Richey (2016), Cocoa Beach (2019), and Sarasota (2019). In most instances, the penalty reforms include a three-strike rule, a reduction in fines ($300 or less), community service or a attendance on a drug education program.
Marijuana is medicine for several reasons. First of all, cannabis plants are full of anti-inflammatory compounds that all work in tandem with one another to produce anti-inflammatory effects. These compounds include cannabinoids like delta-8 & delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG), and terpenes like pinene, beta-caryophyllene and myrcene. They work better in concert together, improving each individual compound's therapeutic effects and safety profile, called the "entourage effect". The second reason why cannabis is medicine is because many conditions involve inflammation, which is a result of widespread endocannabinoid deficiency or improper endocannabinoid production. You see, THC and CBD are mimics of cannabinoids found naturally in our bodies (endocannabinoids), in particular the endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-AG. When there is a shortage of these naturally-occuring cannabinoids, health problems arise. THC, CBD and other cannabinoids can replace these lost endocannabinoids. The third reason why cannabis works as a medicine is because it targets - and the effects are felt by - the endocannabinoid system (ECS), most notably the receptors CB1 (found in the central nervous system) and CB2 (found in the immune system). The ECS influences and talks to other receptor systems, including dopamine, serotonin and dopamine receptors. Because of its impact on multiple receptor sites, it is possible to use cannabis in a way to reduce or replace the need for other medications, many of which are made with a single receptor target in mind. This is particularly useful for reducing the need for harsher, more addictive pharmaceuticals such as benzodiazepines and opioids, as well as more innocuous ones like ibuprofen and anti-depressants. This also means a lower likelihood of overdose!
Well, if you are using cannabis medically, the only way to do so legally in Florida is to get certified for medical cannabis and get an MMJ card! Some other states may also recognize a Florida medical marijuana card, and/or allow Florida patients to apply to their own state program. This can be a huge benefit for those who travel between states extensively.
