"Our patients receive individualized care and we are dedicated to sharing our knowledge by educating the public about the benefits of medical marijuana," Scotson added.
To be entered in the Medical Marijuana Use Registry, a patient must be evaluated in person by a certified medical marijuana physician. After the doctor determines that a patient diagnosed with one of the qualifying medical conditions would benefit from medical marijuana, the patient is registered.
The doctor also enters an order for the dosages and types of medical marijuana products the patient should receive. The patient and their legal caretaker (if applicable) are issued medical marijuana cards and can purchase marijuana products from a dispensary (also known as a medical marijuana treatment center) operated by a licensed Florida grower.
To purchase medical marijuana in Florida, you must be a Florida resident diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition, such as epilepsy, cancer, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Crohn's disease, ALS, or PTSD.
