Recently, Senate Bill 8A became law upon the signature of the Governor.  The law directs the Boards of Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine to adopt rules for a standardized consent form to certify patients for medical marijuana use. To accomplish this, the Boards of Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine have selected emergency rule committee members to begin work.

Medical Doctors and Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine will be held to practice standards currently in place and new practice standards as soon as they’re adopted. We will provide regular updates through the board website as we move through this process.

The Boards of Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine’s Joint Committee on Medical Marijuana will meet on Friday, July 14, 2017, 10 a.m. by Conference Call In Meet-Me #: 1-888-670-3525, Participation Code: 125 528 7056.

Please check the Board website at www.FLBoardofMedicine.gov for meeting dates and more information or call the Board of Medicine at 850-245-4131.
