Don’t let your medical marijuana card expire!
Florida State Law requires patients to renew their Medical Marijuana Card every year with the Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU). Per state law, patients are required to be seen in person by their certifying physician every 7 months. If you haven’t done that yet, you will first need to follow our instructions on how to schedule your 7-month appointment. Next, use this step-by-step guide to renew your Medical Marijuana Card with the State of Florida. The earliest you can start your card renewal is 45 days before the expiration date on your card.
STEP 1. Visit the Medical Marijuana Use Registry website and log in to your profile.
If you do not remember your password, you can select ‘RESET PASSWORD‘ on the Medical Marijuana Use Registry Login page and then follow the instructions to reset it.
STEP 2. Select the ‘YOUR CARD’ menu option at the top of the page to get to your Application History:
STEP 3. Once you have selected ‘YOUR CARD’, you will see your Application History page. Please note that if there are more than 45 days left before your card expires, this page will state the number of days left until you can renew. If your card is ready to be renewed, select the button that says ‘BEGIN RENEWAL’:
STEP 4. A prompt will appear asking you to confirm that you would like to renew your Medical Marijuana Card. Select ‘RENEW’ to continue:
At this point, the Registry website will obtain your id photo from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) database. If your Florida Driver’s License or Florida Identification Card photo does not appear, contact your MY FLORIDA GREEN doctor to check that your information has been submitted to the Registry correctly.
If you don’t have a photo in the FLHSMV database or you have one, but don’t wish to use it, then you will need to upload a photo. To do so, follow the instructions in the Office of Medical Marijuana User’s guide for Uploading Photographs from Desktop/Laptop Computers or Uploading a Photograph from a Mobile Device.
STEP 5. To provide a new copy of your Florida Driver’s License or Identification Card, select the ‘UPLOAD FILE’ button:
If you need to supply proof of residency, please follow the instructions on how to upload it in the Office of Medical Marijuana User’s Guide for Uploading Residence from Desktop/Laptop Computers or Uploading Residence from a Mobile Device.
Seasonal residents, or those without a Florida State Driver’s License or Identification Card, can upload pictures of their utility bill, lease, property tax, or voter’s registration documents.
STEP 6. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, where you will find the Signature section. In the boxes, type your first and last name in order to electronically sign the renewal application.
STEP 7. Click on the button that says, ‘SUBMIT MY CARD APPLICATION’:
STEP 8. Next, the website will inform you that payment must be made in order for the renewal application process to be completed. Click on the ‘CLOSE’ button to continue:
STEP 9. Select the button that says, ‘CLICK HERE TO PAY ONLINE’:
STEP 10. The Bill2Pay interface will open in a new window. Provide your payment details here or mail a check or money order, payable to Florida Department of Health, to this address:
Florida Department of Health
ATTN: Office of Medical Marijuana Use
P.O. Box 31313
Tampa, FL 33631-3313
If you pay online, we suggest that you print the payment confirmation for your records.
Checking the status of your renewal is easy on the Registry website. To do so, follow the steps provided in the Office of Medical Marijuana Use Guide to Checking the Status of Your Patient/Caregiver Application.
Remember that, while your renewal is being processed, your current card will remain valid and can be used until it expires.
