Well congratulations, you are almost fully legal and ready to begin getting the medication you need!

The last step before heading to the MMTC is to submit your application to get a Medical Marijuana Use Registry Identification Card. This can be done online or by mail. If you submit your application and $75 processing fee online, the process is expedited compared to sending the physical application in!

Below is an outline of the process and some requirements to keep in mind. Remember if you have a Florida Drivers license or ID, your photo will automatically attach to the application for you.


  • Retrieve your login credentials for the Medical Marijuana Use Registry that have been sent to the email address you supplied to your qualified physician.
  • Supply all necessary documentation and submit your payment information for the $75 processing fee.
