Both Florida residents and seasonal (“snowbird”) residents may be eligible. The term “seasonal resident” is defined under Senate Bill 8A as a person who resides in Florida for a period of at least 31 consecutive days in each calendar year, maintains a temporary residence in Florida, returns to the state or jurisdiction of his or her residence at least one time during each calendar year, and is registered to vote or pays income tax in another state or jurisdiction.
Mary J Md physicians will assess the eligibility of a patient before they apply for a medical marijuana card from the Florida Department of Health. Purchase of cannabis from a medical marijuana treatment center (or dispensary) is restricted to those who have a state-issued card.
While edible marijuana is still prohibited under the new law, medical marijuana may be taken via smoking, vaporizer, or as an oil, spray, or tincture.
