No, there are no medical cannabis dispensaries in Doral. While Florida has legalized medical cannabis with over 500 medical cannabis dispensaries spread across the state, Doral has no medical marijuana dispensary established within the city limits. The Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act enacted by Florida Legislature in 2014 allowed patients diagnosed with cancer and epilepsy to access low-THC cannabis. However, patients' access to low-THC marijuana was limited as only certain state-licensed physicians could order it from licensed dispensing organizations on the patients' behalf. The Compassionate Use Act created the Florida Medical Marijuana Program under the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and established the Office of Compassionate Use (OCU) to oversee the program. In order to remove restricted access to medical cannabis and expand the list of qualifying debilitating conditions, Florida voters approved Constitutional Amendment 2 in November 2016.
Following the approval of Amendment 2, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 8A to implement it and establish medical cannabis dispensaries, commonly called Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (MMTCs), across Florida. The OCU was also renamed the Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU). However, the Doral City Council adopted Ordinance No. 2018-03 in 2018 to impose a one-year temporary moratorium on establishing MMTCs within the city boundaries.
