The Office of Medical Marijuana Use is committed to working hand-in-hand with law enforcement throughout the implementation of section 381.986, F.S. and Amendment 2.
The Medical Marijuana Use Registry is a secure, online database for the registration of qualified physicians and patients and their orders. It is accessible by patients, qualified physicians, law enforcement, medical marijuana treatment center staff and Office of Medical Marijuana Use staff.
Pursuant to s. 381.987, F.S. the department allows access to confidential and exempt information in the Medical Marijuana Use Registry to law enforcement agencies that are investigating a violation of law regarding marijuana in which the subject of the investigation claims an exception established under s. 381.986, F.S.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement offers medical marijuana training to all members of law enforcement pursuant to s. 381.986, F.S. Officers can access the Medical Marijuana in Florida: A Law Enforcement Reference Guide through CJNET.
It is recommended that each law enforcement organization assign a Master User for their organization. Master Users have the ability to create and manage additional user accounts within their organizations.
To assign an individual as a Master User in the Medical Marijuana Use Registry, please view our instructional guide on Becoming a Master User.
Reporting to the OMMU
The Department of Health, Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) relies on criminal justice agencies to report violations that are grounds for suspending or revoking registrations. There is no automated notification to the OMMU that a person has been charged; therefore, agencies should notify the OMMU when a patient or caregiver is charged with a violation of chapter 893, Florida Statutes.
Report violations via email to MedicalMarijuanaUse@flhealth.gov. Please include the words “Confidential pursuant to s. 119.071(2), F.S.” in the subject line or body of the email message. That flags the information as confidential and exempt from disclosure. Please provide the individual's name, DOB, Patient ID (if applicable), and any pertinent details of the violation (date of occurrence, case number, etc.).
