In Florida, medical marijuana can only be prescribed by a qualified physician who has completed the required training and is registered with the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU).
Physicians are required to follow certain guidelines when prescribing medical marijuana to patients. These guidelines include determining if the patient has a qualifying condition and if medical marijuana is an appropriate treatment option. The physician must also determine the appropriate dosage and route of administration for the patient, as well as provide ongoing monitoring and follow-up care.
Additionally, physicians must adhere to certain record-keeping and reporting requirements, and must not issue a medical marijuana certification to themselves, family members, or any individuals with whom they have a financial relationship. It is important for physicians to stay up-to-date on any changes or updates to the guidelines and regulations surrounding medical marijuana in Florida.
