Medical Marijuana Card Reciprocity In Florida

Marijuana is now used across several areas of the United States for various medical conditions. So, if you plan on traveling to Florida, you may wonder if your out-of-state medical cannabis card will be accepted. 

Understanding Marijuana Reciprocity

Medical marijuana reciprocity is the term used to describe whether or not a state recognizes out-of-state medical marijuana (MMJ) cards.

In some states that have reciprocity, out-of-state patients can legally purchase medical marijuana, so long as they’re enrolled in their home state’s MMJ program. In others, however, reciprocity laws only allow travelers to legally use – not purchase – medical marijuana. Some states require out-of-state travelers to register their MMJ cards with the local government. 

Given that MMJ reciprocity laws can greatly vary from state to state, it’s important to research your travel destination in advance and plan accordingly. 

Does Florida Accept Medical Marijuana Cards From Out of State?

At this time, Florida doesn’t accept medical marijuana cards from out of state. While this may seem like a big problem for travelers who rely on medical cannabis, seasonal residents can apply for a Florida Medical Marijuana ID card. 

You can qualify as a seasonal resident in Florida and apply for an MMJ card if you’ve lived in Florida for over 30 days. Additionally, you’ll need to have a diagnosis for one of the qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in Florida, which include:

  • PTSD
  • Seizures
  • Epilepsy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Chronic muscle spasms
  • ALS
  • Cancer
  • Any similarly serious medical condition
  • Any condition or chronic malignant pain caused by a qualifying condition
