Application Approval Process

The Medical Marijuana Use Registry is linked to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles' (FLHSMV) demographic database to make the ID card application and approval process more efficient. Using the FLHSMV-sourced data will automatically approve the photo and proof of residency, and may cut down on processing time. Online applications take an average of 10 business days for approval.

If you are submitting an application by mail, please allow an additional 3-5 days for postal delivery of your application.

Patients and caregivers can check the status of their application by calling 800-808-9580 or through the Medical Marijuana Use Registry. Click here for a guide of the status icons and their meaning.
