Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana in Florida
Here in Florida, the laws specifically mention a number of conditions for which marijuana may be prescribed.
Qualifying conditions also take into account any terminal condition that has already been diagnosed by another physician besides the qualified physician making the recommendation for medical marijuana.

If you believe medical marijuana could help you but you don’t see a relevant condition on that list, it could still help to go see a doctor. Doctors may also recommend medical marijuana for chronic nonmalignant pain resulting from any of the conditions mentioned above. Furthermore, medical marijuana doctors may recommend medical marijuana for patients with other debilitating conditions. In these cases, the doctor must be able to make a reasonable judgment that the medical use of cannabis is likely to outweigh the potential health risks for a patient.
