Objective: Florida expanded access to medical marijuana in 2017, where change in state law permitted the purchase and use of medical marijuana as treatment or adjuvant therapy for a series of qualifying conditions. Medical marijuana is required to be purchased through a licensed medical marijuana treatment center (MMTC) dispensary under certified order from an authorized physician. The purpose of this study was to map MMTC and authorized physician location concentration by geographic area, and compare concentration of medical marijuana service availability by community characteristics.
