Is Medical Marijuana Legal in Florida?
Over the years, lawmakers in Florida have battled over the legalization of this “drug.” In 2014, Amendment 2 was put in front of voters and fell about 2 percent short of the 60 percent of votes that were needed. However, in 2016 the amendment was re-introduced, and 71 percent of citizens voted for legalizing medical marijuana in Florida.
In January of this year, the amendment, which guarantees the right of patients with certain “debilitating” illness, will have the right to use cannabis. While the whole state isn’t completely on board, many are hoping to normalize the use of medical marijuana within the coming months and years.
