First Walk-In Medical Marjuana Clinics Open in Florida

In many states where marijuana just recently obtained legal status, there’s plenty of opportunities for business and this is what investors are actively looking into.

In fact, some of them have successfully and effectively filled existing gaps. Take for example Tracilea Young. Noting the state’s high population of aging communities and the lack of good customer care for this pool of patients interested in the prospect of marijuana treatment, Young decided to open five walk-in clinics within the Tampa Bay area.

An intermediary

Young owns the chain of Tetra Health Care clinics that she originally established in California. In Florida, her clinics are situated in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, and Brandon locations.

Just like in any other walk-in urgent care centers, patients can get their medical marijuana recommendations from a doctor, which they need to obtain the drug in any of the seven licensed dispensaries in the state.

A new industry

The cannabis industry is still gaining traction in Florida with fickle legislative foundations that limit the manufacture and distribution of the drug. But this is not uncommon in states that are still in the initial phases of adopting the long-stigmatized cannabis.

This year, the state is poised to expand the number of licensed dispensaries to 17, a decision that is attracting a good number of investors.


For patients looking to get a doctor recommendation from Tetra’s walk-in centers, a payment of $198 is required to keep your information updated in the state’s medical marijuana patient registry. You can then pay $99 for your first visit and then $14.99 monthly for the service or all up front.

You may visit Tetra Health Care in any of the following locations:

1602 Oakfield Dr., Suite 109 in Brandon
2963 Gulf To Bay Blvd., Suite 310 in Clearwater
3010 E 138th Ave,. Suite 102 in Tampa
2814 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., in Tampa
696 1st Ave. N., in St. Petersburg

    1. Probably not, you’ll have to call and check. Chances are you’ll need a Florida address and medical card.
