YES. After you are certified and registered by one of our physicians, the state will send your acceptance email, usually within a few days. A copy of your acceptance email can then be used as a temporary card, along with your Florida ID, to purchase medical marijuana until you get your actual card. The Medical Marijuana Use Registry will send the card directly to you. You are NOT able to buy medicine at a medical marijuana treatment center unless/until you have either your temporary or real card ‘in hand.’ Getting your card may take up to approximately 30 days, and w recommend you send your application as early as possible after your appointment not to delay the process.
