❯Can any Florida-licensed physician prescribe medical cannabis?
No. Only physicians who complete a special course offered by the state are allowed to prescribe medical cannabis.
❯Can I get medical marijuana on my own without seeing a physician?
No. State law requires that you first see a specially trained physician like Dr. Patel.
❯Can I get a prescription for medical cannabis the first time I see Dr. Patel?
Yes, if you medically qualify under state law. (A 90-day waiting period is no longer required before you can get your first prescription.)

Yes. State law requires that all patient and medication information be entered into the Florida Department of Health database.
