Although cannabis possession is illegal in the City of Pembroke Pines, possession of up to 20 grams of cannabis has been decriminalized at the state level. Hence, Pembroke Pines citizens caught with less than 20 grams of cannabis may only be charged with a civil violation. Without a valid medical marijuana card, you are likely to face harsh repercussions if you are caught possessing more than 20 grams of cannabis. The length of your jail time depends on the quantity of marijuana found on you.
The Florida legislature passed the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act in 2014. When this law went into effect on January 1, 2015, licensed physicians in Florida could legally prescribe medicinal marijuana to Floridian patients. Such patients, however, must have cancer or a disease that caused them to have frequent, severe muscular spasms or seizures and had exhausted all other therapeutic options. Florida voters overwhelmingly supported Amendment 2 on November 8, 2016, by a margin of 71.3%, expanding the state's restrictive medicinal marijuana statute to include more ailments.
Today, Pembroke Pines residents suffering from any of the approved conditions listed in Section 381.986 (2) of the Florida Statutes may enroll in the Florida medical cannabis program. Such ailments include cancer, glaucoma, HIV, Parkinson’s disease, and Crohn’s disease. In accordance with a recent emergency rule issued by the Florida Department of Health, a qualified physician may issue to a registered Pembroke Pines medical cannabis patient a medical cannabis certification for up to three 70-day supply limits of medical cannabis. The physician is also permitted to issue up to six 35-day supply limits for medical cannabis in smokable form. Current medical cannabis law in Florida also allows Pembroke Pines minors to access medical cannabis by designating adult caregivers to help them administer medical cannabis products.
The emergency rule caps the total supply of THC in non-smokable cannabis at 24,500 mg for 70 days. It also sets maximum doses for other forms of cannabis, such as tinctures and edibles. The rule puts into effect a state law that says you can only buy 2.5 ounces of smokable marijuana in a 35-day period.
It is unlawful to use medical cannabis in public or to drive a car while under the influence of medicinal cannabis. The city also prohibits the home cultivation of cannabis for medical uses.
Only Pembroke Pines residents who have been issued medical cannabis certifications for having approved medical conditions may apply for medical marijuana cards in the city. Such applications must be directed to the Florida Office of Medical Marijuana Use. The approved conditions for medical marijuana in Florida are:
Chronic nonmalignant pain due to a qualifying medical condition
A terminal health condition diagnosed by another physician besides the physician issuing the medical marijuana certification

Not all physicians are authorized to give medicinal marijuana certifications. To find an approved physician, use the OMMU list of qualified physicians. You may also use the OMMU website's physician search feature to identify authorized healthcare providers in Pembroke Pines.
After determining that cannabis is an acceptable treatment for your condition, the licensed physician will add your name and medical information to the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry (MMUR). Your registration information in the MMUR will be sent to you via email. To access your MMUR profile and apply for a medical marijuana card, use the link included in the mail. Typically, online applications take 10 days to process. You may also apply for a medicinal marijuana card by mail. If you are submitting a medicinal marijuana card application by mail, you must provide the following:
A completed medical cannabis patient application form
A passport-style photo
A copy of acceptable proof of residency
A $75 check or money order made payable to the Florida Department of Health. Your patient identification number must be included on the memo line of the money order
