You must obtain an OMMU ID card and ‘recommendation orders’ from a qualifying physician, – not a prescription – to obtain medical marijuana at a Florida dispensary. Only a Florida state licensed physician certified under the state’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use system can qualify an individual for the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry.
All patients and/or their legal representatives desiring to obtain medical marijuana must have a valid Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry ID card. This allows the individual named on the card to obtain low-THC marijuana/cannabis, medical marijuana/medical cannabis, and cannabis delivery devices. Patients must be evaluated by Florida state licensed physician, be a Florida resident and submit an application to the Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU). Once our physician has evaluated your condition, we will help you complete your electronic application or provide information on how to so.
The law is written that the physician must physically see you every 210 days to renew your certification and add orders to your online registry, each followup visit is $100.
Re-certification is required every 210 days to keep your orders active. The State requires you to physically see Dr. Bob Goethe every 7 months. Your Office of Medical Marijuana Use license is an annual renewal of $75. The orders and the license are 2 different things, they rarely coincide.
