To maintain an active Florida Medical Marijuana ID card, patients and caregivers must submit a renewal application annually. Renewal applications are available beginning 45 days prior to the expiration date of the card, and the Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) recommends renewing your application around this time to ensure that there is no lapse in treatment eligibility. The expiration date of the identification card is printed on the front of the card.
The OMMU offers two easy ways to submit a renewal application: online or by mail.
Renew Your Medical Marijuana ID Card Online
The easiest and most popular way to renew your Medical Marijuana ID card is online. As long as you created an account with the Medical Marijuana Use Registry, you can renew your application online.
Step 1: Log into the Medical Marijuana Use
Registry at https://mmuregistry.flhealth.gov. (If you do not remember your password, you may reset it yourself by selecting Forgot Password on the Login page)
Step 2: Navigate to the “YOUR CARD” menu option at the top of the page. This will lead you to an Application History page, where you will see your current, approved identification card application.
Step 3: Click "BEGIN RENEWAL" to open a renewal application. You may start a renewal application 45 days prior to your card's expiration date. The number of days until you can begin a renewal application will be listed on this page. If your previous card is still valid, renewing your card will not affect your ability to obtain products
Step 4: Click “PROCEED"
Step 5: Review all data for accuracy. Then click "APPLY"
Step 6: Read the confirmation message and click "APPLY" to confirm.
Step 7: Click "SUPPLY A PHOTO" to supply either your Florida State ID photo, or to supply your own passport-style photo to your application.
Step 8: A prompt appears for you to either check for your State ID photo or to supply your own passport-style photo. Clicking "CHECK STATE ID PHOTO" will upload your driver's license photo from the Florida Department of High Safety and Motor Vehicles' (FLHSMV) demographic database.
Clicking "SUPPLY MY OWN" will allow you to upload a photo from your device. (Using the FLHSMV sourced data will automatically approve the photo and may cut down on processing time, while supplying your own photo may increase the processing time.)
Step 9: Read the message and click "PROCEED"
Step 10: Upload your Proof of Residency documentation. Scroll down to the section titled "PROOF OF RESIDENCE" and then click "SUPPLY PROOF"
Step 11: Click "CHECK STATE RESIDENCY STATUS" to obtain your Driver's License or Florida State ID from FLHSMV. If you wish to upload your own photo of your ID, click "SUPPLY MY OWN" to supply your own proof of residency document. Select the file you wish to upload and click "OPEN" The document will appear below the "SUPPLY PROOF" button.
Step 12: Click "PROCEED"
Step 13: Review all data to make sure it is accurate. Then click "APPLY"
Step 14: Electronically sign your application. Scroll to the bottom of the page to the "Signature"
section to type your first name and last name in the boxes provided.
Step 15: Click "SUBMIT MY CARD APPLICATION." A pop-up will appear advising that the application is not complete until payment is received. Click "CLOSE"
Step 16: To pay, click the button that says, "CLICK HERE TO PAY ONLINE" which will appear after submitting your card application.
A new window will open containing the Bill2Pay interface, where you can supply your payment details. Payments by e-check and credit card are accepted. A $2.75 convenience fee applies to each online payment.
Select Method of Payment & Fill out all payment information. Currently, credit cards, debit cards, and e-checks are acceptable payment methods. Click "CONTINUE" after all payment information is entered. Confirm all information is correct. Once you confirm all the information is correct and have input your email address, click "I agree to the Terms and Conditions." Then click "Make a Payment." Click "Print for your Records" to print the confirmation of the payment. You can check the status of your application as it is being reviewed. To learn what each status icon stands for, please see our Understanding My Application Status guide on our Know the Facts MMJ website Once your Identification Card application has been approved, you will then be able to contact one of the licensed medical marijuana treatment centers to fill an order.
