Tallahassee, Fla. — Today, the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use announced that patients and caregivers can now submit online payment for their Medical Marijuana Use Registry Identification Cards. The upgrade, deployed at 11 p.m. last evening, allows applicants to pay with a credit card or through their bank account.

The department is committed to ensuring qualified patients have safe, reliable access to low-THC cannabis and medical marijuana. In an effort to better serve patients, the department is streamlining the medical marijuana identification card application process.

This is second upgrade made to the registry in recent weeks to streamline the registration experience for patients and caregivers. On February 16, the department announced that the integration of photos directly from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles system was complete.

The department continues to prioritize patient-focused upgrades that make the application process easier for patients and caregivers. The processing time for applications continues to decrease. Currently, the processing time for complete paper applications is 26 days, and the processing time for complete online applications is 17 days.

Each Friday, the department issues a Weekly OMMU Update, which are available online here.
