When Florida authorized medical marijuana (MMJ) for qualified patients in 2016, it developed a set of standards that physicians and patients must follow to lawfully recommend and use medicinal marijuana products.
If a person with a state-qualifying condition visits a Florida Medical Marijuana Doctor and becomes a registered MMJ patient, they must renew their registration with the Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) every year.
The process of becoming a certified patient can be complex and even daunting for many people. Once you’ve registered, it’s second nature to be able to legally get medical marijuana products, and it’s easy to forget that the state has its own set of rules that must be followed.
Your Florida Medical Marijuana Card must be renewed every year.
