Florida Medical Marijuana

Information About Medical Marijuana in Florida

Currently medical marijuana in the state of Florida is going through an exciting stage in regards to its possible legalization this coming November. Ballot Initiative Amendment #2 will be voted on by Floridians this November when they head to the polls. Initially a constitutional amendment sponsored by the People United for Medical Marijuana received 745,613 signatures, more than 50,000 originally needed, a week before its February 1, 2014 deadline. However due to what she felt was misleading wording, Attorney General Pam Bondi, attempted to keep the Initiative off the November ballot. Thankfully the Florida Supreme Court ruled 4-3 in favor of allowing state voters to decide the issue for themselves in November’s elections.

Should it pass, which many experts believe is the case, Ballot Initiative #2 would permit individuals who have been certified by a licensed Florida physician to possess and use medical marijuana so long as they suffer from a detrimental and debilitating disease. The Initiative allows the Department of Health to register and regulate centers that cultivate and distribute medical cannabis. The Department will also be responsible for issuing identification cards to qualifying patients and their respective caregivers, denoting their acceptance into the state medical marijuana program.

At this current time MarijuanaDoctors.com is proud to announce we have two physicians in the Miami-Dade area that are seeing patients and building the needed Bonafide patient-physician relationship for entry into the possible Florida medical marijuana program.
