The Complete Guide To Marijuana In Miami

Discussing marijuana's legality, where to find it, and how to become a registered medical patient in Florida.

There’s nothing like a hot Miami vacay, but where’s the weed at? Below, we’ve listed out some key tidbits about finding marijuana in Miami, if it’s legal, and how to gain access to medical dispensaries in Florida.

Is Weed Legal In Miami? The State Of Florida Legalization

Unfortunately, recreational cannabis is not legal in Florida or decriminalized. There are still some pretty severe consequences if you’re caught smoking marijuana where you shouldn’t (high foot-traffic public areas). If you’re caught with 20g or less, which is considered a misdemeanor, it can result in a fine of $1000, one year in jail, or both.

On the bright side, Florida does have a very successful medical marijuana program, and most medical dispensaries in the state offer potent flower, edibles, concentrates, and more. But if you’re not a medical user, how can you get cannabis?
