By state law ONLY one of these qualified doctors may prescribe your medical marijuana based on their evaluation of your condition and their experience with you during your office visit.

It is also important to know that any and all information relating to your certification for medical marijuana and your prescription information must be put into a state database run by the state health department. This database is what tells the state that you are legally permitted to fill a prescription for medical marijuana, it also tells the state regulated dispensaries what your prescription is (as written by your doctor,) so that they can fill it appropriately.

Q: Can I Go To A Dispensary Before My Card Arrives In Florida?

A: Once you have submitted your application to the state and The Department of Health Office of Medical Marijuana has sent you an email approval after viewing your profile, you can use that email approval to start filling your medical marijuana prescription before your medical marijuana card arrives in the mail. (Dispensaries will be able to see you are approved by one of the state approved physicians and that you have been processed by the State). It will usually take two weeks after your doctor’s approval
