The FOMA 8-hour Florida Physician Cannabis Course no longer meets the educational requirements necessary under Florida law for physicians to certify patient eligibility for medical marijuana. As of June 23, 2017, a new 2-hour course (not yet available) is required. Physicians who take this 8-hour course after June 23rd will still have to complete the new 2-hour course once it becomes available before they can legally certify patients as eligible for medical marijuana.
