The Department of Health is implementing significant changes to the way certification and orders are entered into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry system. 

Unfortunately, these changes are not retroactive in regard to smokable cannabis orders.  DOH is requiring physicians to cancel out and re-enter every single smoking certification and associated order since the new smoking law was implemented in March 2019. 

MMTCs (dispensaries) will be able to dispense smokable cannabis to patients with the old smokable recommendation format (notes in inhalation orders) until July 12, 2019. After this date MMTCs will no longer be able to dispense smokable cannabis until their doctor has updated their certification and orders into the new registry format. 

As you can imagine this is a significant amount of data entry for cannabis physicians. We are working to streamline our process in the most efficient way possible, but appreciate patience as we work through redoing over 3 months of documentation.

We fully believe in the power of whole plant medicine and know how many of you rely on consistent access to your smokable cannabis. If you use your smokable cannabis regularly and can expect needing to make a purchase after July 12, 2019 and prior to your next follow up appointment please complete this request form on our website. We will complete your requests in the order they are received as soon as possible. Due to high volume, we are unsure of turn around time and appreciate your patience. It may be after 7/12/19. We will work diligently on all requests and process them in the order they are received.

Please note, smokable cannabis does NOT refer to vape pens and cartridges. Smokable cannabis refers to loose flower and pre-rolled joints only. 

DO NOT SUBMIT THIS FORM UNLESS YOU ARE A PATIENT OF DR. SCOTT GEBHARDT AT FLORIDA MEDICAL CANNABIS CLINIC AND ALREADY HAVE SMOKABLE CANNABIS ON YOUR RECOMMENDATION. If you do not already have smokable on your recommendation you will need to schedule a smokable recommendation appointment or wait until your next visit. THIS ONLY APPLIES TO PATIENTS WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN APPROVED FOR SMOKABLE CANNABIS.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO SUBMIT THIS REQUEST IF YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT SCHEDULE BETWEEN 6/27/19 AND 7/12/19.
