Q: Okay, now what exactly comes in an order?

A: Great question! At our facility, we understand that there is currently no scientific evidence behind the dosing of a patient. When we issue an order, we issue them for 28,000 milligrams for each of the six delivery routes (Inhalation, Oral, Edibles, Sublingual, Topical, and Suppository) per seventy (70) day period. For Medical Marijuana whole flower, we issue the state maximum amount of 2.5 ounces (70.87grams) per thirty-five (35) day period. The very high amounts makes it unlikely to run out of milligrams, allowing you to keep making purchases. Sample 210 day (7 Month) breakdown below:

Smokable Six 35 day recommendations

2.5 ounces

Inhalation Three 70 day recommendations

28,000

Edibles Three 70 day recommendations

28,000

Oral Three 70 day recommendations

28,000

Topical Three 70 day recommendations

28,000

Sublingual Three 70 day recommendations

28,000

Suppository Three 70 day recommendations

28,000

Q: Why do I get 28,000 milligrams?

A: A medical marijuana recommendation is not a prescription. There is no scientific data regarding specific dosing. Given its proven safety and the fact that we are trying to help people avoid deadly medications like opioids and benzodiazepines we are providing you with a substantially above average dose per day. Please start low and slowly increase your dose to avoid adverse reaction. if you have any type of adverse reaction please stop and come see Dr Pulido immediately.

 

 

Q: My recommendations/orders  expired! Do I need to come in to see the doctor?

A: you can schedule an appointment to come in or give us a call at 904-586-0041 and we can assist you.

 

 

Q: My card is expiring soon! What do I do?

A: 45 days before the expiration of your card, access to renewing your card opens on your account. You will complete the same process you did for your initial application on the states website https://mmuregistry.flhealth.gov/

Q: Am I allowed to get medical marijuana and own a gun in Florida?

A: This can get complicated but to sum it up: If you are a medical marijuana patient and try to buy a gun at a dealer, you will have to fill out a Firearms Transaction Record and question 11e on that form asks if you are currently an unlawful user of controlled substances with a warning that even state-legal medical marijuana is illegal under federal law and counts in this instance.

When this question is marked yes, the application is automatically denied. So you will be unable to purchase a gun from a dealer. The medical marijuana law itself does not mention guns at all. Guns you already own & medical marijuana are not addressed anywhere.

Getting a concealed weapons permit & medical marijuana is not addressed anywhere, however, Florida elected officials have stated on the record that you can have both and one does not affect the other. You can still purchase guns in a private sale as there is no Firearm Transaction Record form. As far as we can tell, to legally buy a new gun from a dealer a current medical marijuana patient would need to let their card expire, buy the gun, and then renew their card. Please note this is not proper legal advice and you should consult with a lawyer if you have further questions.
