Medical Marijuana Card
The Medical Marijuana ID card is a state-issued identification card that enables qualifying patients to obtain medical marijuana from licensed dispensaries in Florida.
Once a doctor is selected, patients and their caregivers will be entered into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry by their qualified physician, who will provide them with an ID number
Using that ID number, patients will need to apply for their registry identification card online—to apply for a card, the patients and/or legal representatives must submit an application to The Department of Health’s Medical Marijuana Use Registry. This simple one-page application must include a passport photo and can be submitted in one of two ways:
- Online application through the Medical Marijuana Use Registry
- Mailed hard copy to the Office of Medical Marijuana Use: PO Box 31313 Tampa, FL 3363
All applications must include a State registration fee of $75.
Upon approval, the patient or legal representative will receive their ID card in the mail from the Office of Medical Marijuana Use. This is required for patients to fill their order at a Florida medical marijuana dispensary.
Once the application is approved, you can fill your order at a nearby licensed medical marijuana treatment center (MMTC).
If there are no local treatment centers in your city, patients can still fill their orders by contacting a medical marijuana treatment center and arrange for a delivery.
