Frequently asked questions What does the online MMJ approval process look like in Florida? Since the expansion of telemedicine in Florida, getting your medical marijuana card & physician’s certificate has been made much simpler. Here’s what the process looks like: Patient sees a Florida-qualified physician online with Leafwell. Application documents, physician’s certificate and payment details are submitted electronically or via mail through to the Florida Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU). Payment is cleared and the application review process begins – takes around 5 days. If there is a mistake on the initial application form or if there is a relevant document missing, the patient may submit any missing documentation. Once application is approved and payment cleared, the patient receives a temporary, electronic copy of their card. This can be used at dispensaries until the physical copy of the patient’s card arrives. The hard copy of the card is usually mailed to the patient within five days.
