In November 2016, Florida voters passed Amendment 2, or the Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Medical Conditions ballot, allowing safe access to medical marijuana to qualifying patients with debilitating conditions. Florida is the first state in the south to adopt proactive measures towards cannabis.
Under the new legislation, those with debilitating medical ailments, determined by a licensed state physician, will be allowed to use marijuana for medicinal purposes. Additionally, caregivers will be allowed to register with The Department of Health and assist qualifying patients with their medical use of marijuana.
At this time, over forty Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers are open for business to qualifying patients. Be sure to check back frequently, as the state of Florida is approving more licenses in the future.
