Patients wishing to obtain a medical marijuana card must first make an effort to understand the process involved. Many questions a patient has can be easily answered with a visit to the Florida Department of Public Health website. Submitting an application is the first step in obtaining a medical marijuana registry identification card also known as a marijuana license from the Department of Public Health and this must be done by any person wishing to possess marijuana for medical use. The response time for submitting an application can vary depending on the situation and rejections will usually take four to six weeks. For a new card or a renewal card, the process can take four to five months. Changes to a card or obtaining a replacement card may take four to six months.
Obtain A Florida Medical Marijuana Card
Any person who is in the process of applying for a Florida medical marijuana card should be sure to keep a copy of their application documentation, including proof of the mailing date or other transmission of delivery to the state with them at all times. In the event that a person is questioned by a law official for possessing cannabis, this documentation may be presented as proof that the person is in the process of applying for a card. This will be given the same legal effect as a MMJ registry card until the patient receives notice that an application has been approved or denied.
Applicants should also keep in mind that it is necessary to send in an application for renewal of a Florida medical marijuana card no sooner than 60 days before the expiration date on their card. Therefore patients should seek out a medical marijuana doctor practicing in Florida advance. Any applications that are received prior to this date will be considered a duplicate application and the state will require an additional $15.00 fee when renewing within the accepted time frame.
