Why Did My Florida Medical Marijuana Application Get Denied?
The staff at Releaf Medical does their best to ensure patients have their Florida medical marijuana application approved the first time by the state. In some infrequent circumstances patients will receive a denial from the state of Florida in regards to their medical marijuana application. A denial is usually easy to correct and there is no added cost to the patient. The state of Florida will provide a reason they denied the application in the email they send to patients. In most circumstances the patient can correct the reason for the denial of the medical marijuana application themselves. Patients are able to contact the Medical Marijuana Use Registry directly by calling 800-808-9580. When calling the MMUR patients will be required to provide the Medical Marijuana Use Registry with their full legal name, social security number, date of birth, and their patient identification number, which starts with the letter “P.”
Below are some of the most common reasons why a Florida medical marijuana application receives a denial from the state. If a patient requires assistance with re-submitting their application after a denial please contact Releaf Medical at 561-778-5323 or by email at [email protected] and a member of our staff will get the issue resolved.

Proof Of Residency Issues
Permanent Florida Resident: There are two common reasons a permanent Florida resident will have their application denied for proof of residency. The first reason is their Florida drivers license is not valid or expired. The second reason is the address on the patient’s profile with the MMUR does not match the address displayed on their Florida identification card or drivers license.
Seasonal Florida Resident: Some of the more common reasons for the state of Florida to deny an application for a seasonal Florida resident are displayed below.
- The documents uploaded to prove Florida residency are not accepted by the state
- The documents are over 60 days old
- The documents are not clear or legible
- The address displayed on the documents does not match the address on the patients profile with the MMUR
Profile Photo Issues
If the state of Florida issues a denial of application email to a patient for photo reasons it typically means the photo did not meet the states criteria. Photos submitted to the state of Florida must be a “passport style” photo, taken against a white background, and the photo must be a closeup of the patient’s face. The patient’s face must be clearly visible and the patient should not be wearing any type of hat, mask, sunglasses, etc.
Bounced Or Lost Payment
The state required application fee of $75.00 is not processed due to insufficient funds or a chargeback. If payment was not processed by the state the patient will need to make this Florida medical marijuana application payment for the state to review the document.
In extremely rare circumstances a patient’s payment will be processed by the state, but the state of Florida will misplace or not record this record of payment. Releaf Medical advises all of our patients to keep the payment confirmation email sent by the state until the state of Florida issues the patient their temporary medical marijuana card.
There are some additional issues that may cause a patient’s application to be denied by the state of Florida. In the case of a mistyped social security number or date of birth the state will not be able to provide an acceptance until this error is corrected. An incorrect gender on a profile may cause a denial of application. If a patient’s gender on their MMUR profile does not match the gender on their identification card the state may deny an application.
Re-submitting Your Florida Medical Marijuana Application
When re-submitting an application patients will have to wait an additional 2-5 business days for the state of Florida to review the revisions. Patients will need to log into their profile with the Medical Marijuana Use Registry to make the necessary changes or to upload the required documents. If a patient needs to update their personal information this will be done on the profile page. If a patient needs to make an adjustment to the documents they provided this will be done by going to the My Card page. Once at the My Card Page the patient will select “View Initial Application.” The patient will upload the required documents on the initial application page or make the requested revisions to the application on this page. Once the additional documents or revisions have been submitted the patient will scroll to the bottom of the page, enter their name into the provided slot, and then select the “Submit” button. If patients have any questions or need assistance with the application process please contact Releaf Medical via phone at 561-778-5323 or by email at [email protected].
