What Are the Benefits of Having a Medical Cannabis Card in a Legal State like Florida?

 

Florida Medical Marijuana Card

 

There are a few benefits to having a medical marijuana recommendation in Florida, ranging from legal protection and health benefits and more. However, it is important to first legally protect yourself so let’s explain legal protection and hopefully answer a few questions.

You may have already been using cannabis for medical reasons, but if you don’t have a medical marijuana recommendation, you’re breaking the law — and could find you have lots of trouble as a result. It doesn’t matter if you’re using it for legitimate reasons. You can only protect yourself legally if you have a medical marijuana recommendation from a qualified physician.

Penalties for carrying illegal marijuana in Florida vary and include:
• Fines
• Treatment for addiction
• Incarceration

You don’t have to be caught selling marijuana to find yourself charged with attempted distribution, either. If you have a large amount of the drug in your possession, you may be considered to be in possession with intent to sell. Having a medical marijuana recommendation means that you have legal protection under Florida law. This way, if you’re ever pulled over for a speeding ticket and the cops search your car, you can legally have the drug in your possession.

In conclusion, if you’re suffering from a qualifying condition and are using cannabis illegally to self-medicate, you would benefit significantly from a medical marijuana recommendation.
