Your first step is to see a doctor at Doc MJ. At your first appointment you will get a patient ID number THEN you will NEED to apply for your CARD.
You will need to go to the state's website and fill out the application online CLICK HERE. You will need to send a check or money order to the state for the $75 fee for your card after filling out the online application. Cards must be renewed yearly for a $75 fee.
You will need a passport photo taken for your card. This can be done at any CVS, Walgreen's, etc. Cost for passport photo is between $10 - $15.
You will need to be patient. The state is taking 30 - 60 days to process card applications and mail your card.

Or CALL the Office of Medical Marijuana Use at: (850) 245-4657 But be prepared to be on hold for a long time before someone answers your call.

VERY IMPORTANT -
I'm sure you heard it is taking the state DOH at least 30 - 60 days to get our cards to us. The REASON this is happening is because so many of you are having your passport photos DENIED. And more than ONCE, this is what is slowing the process down tremendously... so how can WE FIX this??? By making SURE you have the PERFECT PHOTO that they are requiring.
1 - Make sure it is a PURE WHITE background in the photo. There can be NO discoloration, no off white, no blue, etc...
2 - Do NOT SMILE.
3 - Do NOT wear eyeglasses
4 - Your photo must be uploaded at the proper size they request. 2 inches by 2 inches or 192 pixels by 192 pixels.
BELOW is the 4th photo of mine that they FINALLY approved.
***Currently it is taking 30 - 60 days to receive your card in the mail.*** (Sorry the state is SLOW)
FIRST you will receive an email with your temporary card info prior to them mailing your actual card. You CAN print it out and go to a dispensary to get your medicine.
Here's my 4th photo that they FINALLY accepted when I applied a few months ago.
Once you have your medical marijuana card it entitles you to go to any Florida dispensary to pick up your recommendation (medicine) or have it delivered to your home.
You DO NOT have to buy all of your medicine at once at the dispensary. It can be very costly to buy 70 days worth of medicine all at the same time. You can buy it as you need it.
Florida State Law
"Your medical marijuana card must be renewed yearly at the cost of $75."
"You must see Doc MJ doctor every 7 months and pay the $149 fee. OR continue to pay the $30 per month if you chose their payment plan."
The card application fee is NOT included in your $149 fee paid to Doc MJ.
According to Florida law you must see the doctor every 7 months for renewal as a patient and for your recommendations for medicine.
Your recommendation for medicine is good for 70 days. Doc MJ sends a new recommendation to the dispensaries computer systems every 70 days.
