Marijuana laws, and the requirements on the recommending physicians, vary by state. In Florida, the process to obtain your Cannabis card, has not been streamlined to run as efficiently as it could run. This leads to substantially more paperwork submissions and longer processing times. Apart from this, doctors need to submit for medicine refills every 70 days. Florida state law also requires patients to be re-evaluated every 7 months (210 days). This means more work for doctors because of the extra time spent on every patient.
