    Next, you will schedule an in-person appointment with a medical marijuana doctor in Florida. The medical marijuana doctor must be in Florida’s Medical Marijuana Use Registry. If you have a qualifying condition, your certified doctor will enter your information into the Florida Department of Medical Marijuana Use Registry, thus offering a medical marijuana recommendation. You will then receive a patient ID number.
