“Marijuana” means all parts of any plant of the genus Cannabis, whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of the plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of the plant or its seeds or resin, including low-THC cannabis, which are dispensed from a medical marijuana treatment center for medical use by a qualified patient.

QUESTION: How Do I Use Medical Marijuana Use Registry Identification Card?

  ANSWER: Patients and legal representatives must provide their Medical Marijuana Use Registry identification card to medical marijuana treatment centers in order to obtain medical marijuana, or a marijuana delivery device. Medical Marijuana Use Registry identification cards may also be used to assist in verifying that a patient or legal representative are in the Department of Health’s Medical Marijuana Use Registry.

QUESTION: If I Am A Patient, May I Also Serve As A Legal Representative For Someone Else?

ANSWER: Yes. However, a patient wishing to serve as a legal representative for someone else must apply separately for a legal representative card and a patient card.

QUESTION: How Do I Renew My Card?

     ANSWER: Your medical marijuana registration card is valid for one year from the date of being issued. (This is not to be confused with the 210 days your RECOMMENDATION lasts.) In order to remain a valid patient in Florida’s medical marijuana registry, a patient and/or legal representative must annually submit a renewal application, along with the application fee ($75), and any other required documentation to the department 45 days prior to the card expiration date.

QUESTION: What Happens If I Need To Change The Information On My Card?

 ANSWER: Requests to replace a lost or stolen card will require the cardholder to submit a Change, Replacement or Surrender Request Form, along with a copy of his or her Florida driver’s license or identification card and a $15 replacement fee.

QUESTION: Do I Have To Be A Resident Of Florida To Receive Treatment?

  ANSWER: No, a patient does not need to be a full time resident of a Florida to qualify for a medical marijuana recommendation. Florida includes a “snow bird” clause stating that states a patient must only prove 31 consecutive days of residency per calendar year to qualify.
