In January we learned about the State’s initial draft of proposed rules to govern Florida’s newly expanded medical marijuana program under Amendment 2. Our friends at Compassionate Cannabis Clinic of Venice discuss the proposed rules here and shared the information below about ways to get involved.

The Florida Department of Health (DOH) also announced 5 public workshops to be held throughout the state during the week of February 5th-9th.

Locations and times are listed below.

Equally as important, the DOH launched a public input portal so you – the people of Florida – may share your thoughts about how you’d like to see medical marijuana administered.

One item of particular patient concern from the proposed rules follows:

You read that correctly. The state is suggesting it would like to restrict one of the most important aspects of the law to specific determinations made by the Board of Medicine.

This is clearly not within the intent of the authors of the Constitutional Amendment:

Physicians, not politicians, should be determining who has a debilitating condition for which cannabis can better the quality of life.

As you know, we strongly believe in patient care, education, and advocacy. Now is time for all three! Here’s how you can get involved:

1. Join Our Private Facebook Group

2. Leave Your Comments with the State.

3. Attend a Public Hearing

If you are able to attend a hearing, please do. Empty public meetings usually result in ridiculous regulation. 71.3% of Florida voters said “yes” to Amendment 2, and the government needs to realize there is a very real public mandate to allow for people suffering to receive access to medication that may actually work to make their lives much better.

Now is the time to let our voices be heard. Please join our fight for medical cannabis patient rights in Florida!
