If you’re waving goodbye to winter and migrating south for an extended stay in the sun, chances are you’re familiar with the logistics required to make the trip successful and have everything set up for you down here. If you use medical marijuana (or maybe considering it), certifying for a Florida ID card is just another step…though an important one as it involves your health. Seasonal residents can be approved for a Florida certification.
