With the new rules allowing smoking cannabis in Florida, there have been medical marijuana card scams resurfacing in the area. There are some red flags that you should look for when checking out certification services. Many of them are only out to take your money, and you could get in a lot of trouble if you think you are legal when you are not. Here is what you need to know to protect yourself.
You must have a previous diagnosis.
If you are working with a doctor that claims they can give you your medical diagnosis and your MMJ recommendation in the same appointment, it is a scam. This is completely illegal. You must have a previously diagnosed condition that has had ongoing treatment.
