According to Amendment 2, the Department of Health has until July to issue rules.
It is important to note federal law still criminalizes the possession, use, and sale of marijuana. The new Florida law does not immunize violations of such federal law or any non-medical use, possession or production of marijuana. We will continue to monitor changes to Florida regulations on this issue.

Step 1: Certification Appointment
At your certification appointment, our physicians will talk with you about your qualification for certification of a medical condition that may qualify you for the Florida Medical Marijuana Program. By law, our physicians must only discuss your qualification for the program. After review and approval, qualified patients will receive a signed Physician Certification Form that will allow them to apply to the state for a Medical Marijuana Identification Card. In order to receive the Physician Certification Form, patients must present a valid Florida ID, such as a State issued Florida ID or a Florida driver’s license, along with the physician visit fee. Please note that insurance companies do not cover medical marijuana consultations or the state’s medical marijuana application fee.
