  • It’s ridiculous they’re trying to ban smokable marijuana: that’s how everyone knows that it’s an effective pain relief medicinal alternative. We voted for medical cannabis,which is a plant, not medical cannabis-derived products! Our options, i.e., including smokable, should therefore be legally grounded.
  • 10,000 New Businesses


    It has been said that “an island cannot rule a continent.” Yet right now in Florida, that very event is predicted to happen with Amendment 2. Journalists report that an island of powerful lobbyists represent the five licensees for the medical cannabis industry in Florida. Their goal: to bar the doors, rather than open the market to new licensees as allowed by Amendment 2. Instead of an open competitive market with 10,000 new small businesses, it would create a cartel of the status quo.


    Amendment 2 passed with a super-majority of support from Florida voters. This amendment, now part of the Florida Constitution, authorizes the Department of Health to separately register centers and entities that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes, while fostering a horizontal and open system as opposed to the vertically-integrated and restricted current one.


    In each of Florida’s 67 counties, licenses should be given to qualified applicants in any of the areas of growing, processing, dispensing, transport/delivery, and safety compliance. Consider if these licenses were given at one per 7,000 population: we would grow 10,000 new businesses in Florida. There would be specialists drawn to each area—nurserymen and botanists to the grow areas, physicians and pharmacists to the dispensing area, and law enforcement to safety/compliance. These 10,000 businesses would likely hire three to 30 new employees each. Hundreds of thousands of employees would have real jobs, and a vested interest that would support families and allow even the smallest towns of Florida to flourish. These collective numbers would protect the industry, benefit Florida citizens, and provide a substantial tax revenue for our state budget. These thousands of businesses would employ lawyers, lobbyists, and there would be new funds for research, too.


    Florida’s delay on medical cannabis licenses has been embarrassingly slow for a 21st century, high-tech world. To continue the roadblock to small business licenses would be to maintain a closed market for a select few—a market that has been called “corporate welfare” and opposes the intent and mandate of the voters.


    While Florida has recovered from the recession, the middle class struggles and the disparity of wealth in our state has never been greater. A recent report showed the average person lives paycheck-to-paycheck and does not have $400 in savings for an emergency car-repair. Jobs have been sent overseas. College graduates cannot make a living-wage, and thus shrugged, return home to live with their parents. Let’s use Amendment 2 as it was written to be: “for the people”. Our elected officials have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create 10,000 new small businesses and 200,000 new jobs for our citizens in their own towns.


    I believe in the people of Florida and the legislators who represent them. I believe our legislators support small businesses, open markets and ways to bring wealth back to the voters in their communities. And I believe in jobs for families and the good people of Florida.

  • Do you still need volunteers?
  • I have been involved in the sale of orthopedic devices (Hip, knee replacements, trauma ) and devices for back and neck surgery for 37 years. I am looking for an opportunity in the field of medical marijuana and am willing to move to Florida. This field will need some medical expertise and credibility to educate the public that medical marijuana has little or no THC in it. Medical professionals will also need some education on it’s indications,contraindications,dosages,etc. Also, I would like to get involved in the development of a mobile device or method to determine the level of impairment a person is experiencing, this will be needed when marijuana is passed for recreational use and will be needed everywhere.
  • Hello,


    I recently joined the site as a volunteer and look forward to hearing of opportunities. I am currently preparing to open a dispensary in Miami, and am just looking for opportunity to meet, work and get to know others who are passionate about medical marijuana.
  • I hope John Morgan runs for Governor, wee need him badly.
  • I have more questions about the entire process. Kinda hazzy on a few issues. Getting started, the permits necessary and when are they available? I am a resident of Florida and I have land here. I want to use it for MMJ (Dispensary). How? Compassionate Use Department?

    Please call me or email me with information. I am looking for help.
  • 8 million dollars spent to end up with a shitty medical cannabis law that few will benefit from especially if they only allow low THC cannabis or doctors will be afraid to prescribe. Did you really think the state of Florida would do the right thing? If I could grown my own then would have a supply of quality cannabis without spending a lot of money that some do not have.
  • I am interested in the licensing for a MMJ dispensary. It is my understanding that I need to be registered with the Compassionate Use Department in order to obtain a vendors permit for a MMJ dispensary. I have attempted to contact the Compassionate Use Department to register, but have been told there is no application yet. Any advice on things I should be doing in the meantime would be much appreciated.
  • Please contact me at given number. Have a few questions that I would like to hear about straight from your organization vs internet or news. Thank you so much and will look forward to hearing from you. Ben may remember me from prior to the election. Worked hard on petitions for years. Thank you again
  • I am a reporter with News 13. We are working on a medical marijuana id application story. We are looking for a personal angle on the story by trying to speak to a patient or caregiver. Would there be someone you would know that we could be put in contact with? My work cell is 407-461-3126.


    Thanks
  • I understood that Ammendment 2 would allow patients to grow their own medicine. I look and find I must use one of 7 (6 of which are already licensed) producers. We the patients where and are being mislead once again by those with the money.
  • As a Vietnam veteran with 100% disability I have been given with good intention, medications with so many concerning side effects. I quit using marijuana because of subsequent legal issues; and though FL passed the law but in the same breath placed a 200 plus day moratorium. Does that mean that use is still illegal? I’m 68 years old and a law-a-biding citizen, Thank you for your time on this.
