About the OMMU

Every day, the OMMU works to provide patients, caregivers and physicians the information and resources they need to access Florida's medical marijuana program.

Welcome to the Department of Health Office of Medical Marijuana Use

The Office of Medical Marijuana Use is charged with writing and implementing the department’s rules for medical marijuana, overseeing the statewide Medical Marijuana Use Registry and licensing Florida businesses to cultivate, process and dispense medical marijuana to qualified patients.

The Florida Department of Health, physicians, medical marijuana treatment centers and patients are bound by Article X Section 29 of the Florida Constitution and section 381.986, Florida Statutes. The department is committed to moving as quickly as possible to ensure the health of Floridians and implement Florida law.

It is the responsibility of a qualified physician to follow Florida constitution and statute, diagnose patients and determine if medical marijuana is an appropriate treatment.

The department recommends speaking to your health care professional to determine if medical marijuana products are right for you or your loved one.
