About Medical Marijuana

Florida Medical Marijuana

The law also addresses:

  • Depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, and PMS
  • A terminal condition identified by a medical professional other than your medical marijuana doctor
  • Prolonged non-cancerous pain resulting from another qualifying condition

Florida Qualifying Conditions

  • Also eligible are "other severe medical problems of the same sort or class." This clause does away with the need to specify every scenario that might arise for individual patients. It was designed to make it possible for patients to obtain medicinal marijuana for less common but equally severe illnesses.

How Do I Prove Florida Residency?

Applicants must permanently or temporarily reside in Florida. Full-time residents must show a valid Florida driver's license or state ID card. The state won't accept any other forms of residency documentation when you apply as a full-time resident.

Full-Time Residents

If a full-time resident submits an online application, the registry will check their state identification card or driver's license with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If applying on paper, full-time residents must still include a copy of their Florida driver's license or state ID.

Temporary/Part-Time/Seasonal Residents

A temporary resident, in terms of Florida law, is someone who:

  • Resides in Florida for a minimum of 31 days per year.
  • Returns at least once a year to their home state.
  • Is a person who pays income taxes in another state or is a registered voter in the United States

Temporary residents must submit copies of two of the following documents:

  • A deed, mortgage, monthly mortgage statement, mortgage payment booklet, or lease agreement
  • One proof of residential address from a person with whom the part-time resident lives, along with a statement declaring that the part-time resident does reside there
  • Water, cable, or electric hook-up/work order less than 60 days old
  • Water, cable, or utility bill less than 60 days old
