There are some that are not supportive of the use of Medical Marijuana; Cannabis has been profiled by many, including the federal government, as a schedule 1 drug for many years.
Can my Record Exclude me from getting my Medical Marijuana Card?
The answer is NO. If you are a permanent or seasonal resident in Florida who has a criminal record, you are NOT prohibited from getting a medical marijuana card. This allows individuals with either misdemeanor or felony convictions, who have qualifying medical conditions, to access medical marijuana for therapeutic needs. You MUST be under the supervision of a licensed Florida marijuana doctor.
