Florida Medical Marijuana Card Qualifying Medical Conditions

Debilitating medical conditions are those that significantly interfere with a person’s activities of daily living. While disorders of any organ system can hinder daily living to some extent, diseases that significantly reduce the capacity for physical activity would be considered debilitating.

Many debilitating medical conditions are also chronic. A medical condition is considered to be chronic when the condition or disease is persistent or long-lasting in its effects, and is often applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months.

“Debilitating medical condition means cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or other debilitating medical condition of the same kind or class as or comparable to those enumerated, and for which a physician believes the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for a patient.”
