Since Florida voted to allow medical marijuana in 2016, many scams have surfaced as unscrupulous characters have tried to take advantage of unknowledgeable patients. Unfortunately, the rules and requirements for getting a medical marijuana card in Florida is such a complex, confusing, arbitrary process that many people have difficulty getting certification, even if they qualify.
This creates a breeding ground for scammers who take advantage of the frustration of patients by promising faster certification and immediate mmj cards. Unfortunately, the requirements are very strict, and only certain doctors can issue medical marijuana certifications. And only one Florida entity is permitted to actually process applications and issue identification cards.
