We want to warn all Medical Marijuana patients that the state of Florida has made getting a medical marijuana card online via telehealth visits illegal. Effective June 27, 2021, recertification of existing patients on the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry using telehealth services will no longer be permitted. All medical evaluations/appointments related to cannabis must be done in person.
This emergency order allowed qualified physicians to use telehealth medical marijuana assessments to renew existing patients’ medical marijuana cards, and was only in effect between March 16, 2020 and June 26, 2021.
For your safety do not to trust any medical marijuana offices that offer telemedicine visits. We urge you NOT to place yourself and your medical marijuana license at risk by doing something that is illegal by the state of Florida.
If you want to schedule an in-person appointment at our medical marijuana evaluation clinic in Jacksonville, schedule an appointment to get started.
