With the ever-changing regulations, laws, and curious Miami residents, there are basic informative rules of purchasing and consuming medical marijuana that all Florida residents should know.  But first, the definition of what “medical marijuana” actually is will be helpful information to differentiate Miami street drugs from those that are deemed for medicinal purposes.

Medical Marijuana
There are different species and hybrids of the marijuana plant.  With strict guidelines, the State of Florida highly regulates how their crops are grown for medical purposes.  Some of the plants have much less THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in them than others.  THC is the mind-altering, euphoric component of marijuana that gives the “high” feeling, typically associated with marijuana.  However, new laws were put in place that allows recommendations of elevated levels of THC for certain patients with aggressive disorders. Miami has several dispensaries open and ready to serve Miami patients.  

The natural marijuana plant contains both CBD and THC.  CBD or cannabinoids can treat many different forms of diseases and disorders with low THC.  Marijuana is a non-toxic flowering herb. Our brain and nerve cells have cannabinoid receptors, so our bodies naturally react to CBD (cannabidiol) and TCH (tetrahydrocannabinol) through merging directly with our cells.  Our natural endocannabinoid system works synergistically with CBD and THC, creating a multitude of beneficial reactions in the body. Marijuana with high thc and low thc is available to Miami medical marijuana patients.  Miami patients also have access to CBD.  The Florida law refers to CBD as "low thc".

Qualifying Medical Conditions
Currently, there are 12 medical conditions explicitly defined in the Florida medical marijuana initiative for Miami patients to be considered for a medical marijuana card.  However, the Florida marijuana law also states that any medical condition in which the medical marijuana doctor believes that the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for a patient may be used as criteria when certifying a patient for the Florida medical marijuana program. The medical conditions specifically defined in Florida’s medical marijuana law are:
• Cancer
• Epilepsy
• Glaucoma
• Seizures
• Crohn’s disease
• Chronic muscle spasms
• Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
• Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
• Parkinson’s disease
• Multiple sclerosis
• Any other medical condition of similar kind or class as determined by a Florida certified medical marijuana doctor. 

Certified Marijuana Doctors has an extended list of qualifying medical conditions that their Miami doctors may use as criteria when certifying a patient for Florida’s medical marijuana program.  In addition, for any medical condition that may require pain medication, marijuana may be considered as an alternative treatment to prescription pain medications. A recent study from the University of New Mexico determined that marijuana was effective on chronic pain.  With the opioid epidemic this is an important alternative for Miami residents to consider, since marijuana is non-toxic.  

What is a Marijuana Card?
Any person wanting to obtain a medical marijuana ID card must first see a Certified Medical Marijuana Doctor to be certified.  Once certified, the ID card can be ordered from the Florida Department of Health office of Medical Marijuana.  Miami residents can visit the North Miami location which is 2 blocks East of I-95 on 167th Street in North Miami to get certified.  

The patient must have a marijuana evaluation conducted by a marijuana doctor who is licensed by Florida’s Department of Health to practice medicine in Florida and who is also certified by the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana as a marijuana doctor. The marijuana doctor certifies the patient and enters the patient into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry database. Only people who are registered in the Medical Marijuana Use Registry database can purchase and consume medical marijuana in Florida.

A minor can enroll in the Florida medical marijuana program, but must have the written consent of the parent or legal guardian, and must also get approval from two doctors instead of one.  One of the doctors must be the child's primary care physician.  

To apply for a medical marijuana card in Florida, you must have the following:
• Proof of Florida residency, i.e. valid Florida ID, driver’s license, voter ID, utility bill with the same name on application
• Medical records proving your medical condition
• Certification from one of our Certified Marijuana Doctors who are certified by the Florida Department of  Health’s medical marijuana program

Where can I purchase the Marijuana?
There are medical marijuana dispensaries in Miami, which are the only place you can purchase marijuana legally. The Miami dispensaries also deliver directly to the patient.  Marijuana is still listed as a Schedule I narcotic by the US federal government and therefore cannot be sold in pharmacies since pharmacies are regulated by the federal government’s DEA. Medical marijuana can only be legally purchased from a licensed medical marijuana grower/dispensary, or Medical Marijuana Treatment Center, as they are known in Florida.

Before a Miami patient can legally purchase medical marijuana in Florida the Certified Marijuana Doctor will enter a recommended dosage amount into the registry. Once the marijuana doctor has recommended a dosage the medical marijuana patient can only purchase medical marijuana from any of the licensed dispensaries.  Any marijuana purchased outside of these sources is deemed illegal and is not protected under Florida’s medical marijuana law.
