The Florida Department of Health
Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU)
Attention: Pursuant to section 381.986(4)(f), Florida Statutes (F.S.), the Medical Marijuana Use Registry (“Registry”) was updated on August 29, 2022, to implement Emergency Rule 64ER22-8, Dosing and Supply Limits for Medical Marijuana. This emergency rule determines the daily dose amounts and supply limits for approved routes of administration of marijuana (excluding low-THC cannabis).
Section 381.986(4)(f)1., F.S., allows a qualified physician to request an exception to the daily dose amount for their qualified patient by electronically submitting the “Request for Exception” form in the Registry.
Patients must contact their qualified physician to inquire about the Request for Exception process. Certifications created before August 29, 2022, will not require a “Request for Exception” form, unless the physician alters the original order(s).
Please see our instructional guides for step-by-step help with the Request for Exception processes in the Registry.
Applications for the Pigford/Black Farmers Litigation MMTC license are currently under review. The Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) is moving forward with administrative rulemaking to establish an application process to award up to 22 additional Medical Marijuana Treatment Center (MMTC) licenses. The application rule and the date the OMMU will begin accepting applications will be published in the Florida Administrative Register.
