1. Live in Florida

You must live in Florida to get a medical card. You will need to show proof that you live in Florida, like a Florida driver's license, a state ID card, or a utility bill in your name.

2. Have a Qualifying Medical Condition

Florida has a list of medical conditions that qualify for medical marijuana treatment. These conditions include:

Crohn's disease
Parkinson's disease
Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
Chronic pain caused by a qualifying medical condition or that originates from a qualifying medical condition and persists beyond the usual course of that qualifying medical condition.

If you have a medical condition that isn't on the list, your doctor may still be able to recommend medical marijuana as a treatment option.

5. Get Approved by the Registry

Once your application has been submitted, the Florida Department of Health will review it. If your application is approved, you'll receive a temporary medical card that is valid for 30 days. You'll receive a permanent card in the mail within 10 business days.
