Since the establishment of medical cannabis in Florida, thousands of qualifying Jax residents have taken advantage of the new program to seek relief for various ailments. But many others are still skittish for various reasons – one of the biggest of which is the perception that gaining a medical marijuana license is too expensive.
Depending on your path to gaining a license, the process certainly can end up being costly. But one Jacksonville-based clinic is looking to significantly cut down on those costs.
Affordable Marijuana License Clinic, led by Dr. Rene Pulido of Emed Specialty Group, has begun offering first-time consultation appointments free of charge for qualifying patients with medical documentation. In addition to the free consultation, AMLC will pay for a one-month initial supply of each qualifying patient’s medication – a deal that can end up saving patients hundreds of dollars.
Patients will still be responsible for the $75 application fee charged by the state when processing your license.
After the first month, AMLC patients will be able to request low-cost refills through AMLC’s online portal. They will only be required to come in for follow-ups every seven months, at a cost of $50 each visit.
The goal is to make medical cannabis treatment accessible to a larger number of Jax residents who may otherwise be unable to afford the costs of doctor visits and medication.
