Yes, medical marijuana patients in Florida can have a caregiver. The caregiver fills out their own application form, and must be listed on the patient’s application form as well. Caregivers and patients must renew their physician’s recommendation/certification 45 days prior to the card expiration date.
To apply as a caregiver, follow this process:
1. Retrieve your login credentials for the Medical Marijuana Use Registry from your email. https://knowthefactsmmj.com/patients/cards/#apply
2. Access the “Your Card” page in the Medical Marijuana Use Registry to complete your online application. https://mmuregistry.flhealth.gov/. You must apply to the Medical Marijuana Use Registry (MMUR) to become a legal medical marijuana caregiver. https://knowthefactsmmj.com/patients/cards/#how-to-apply
3. Supply all necessary documentation and submit your payment information for the $75 processing fee.
4. Once qualified, you will be sent a medical marijuana card. Please note: at the moment, we can only renew existing medical marijuana patients via telehealth, not process new applications.
