  • Hi, the Florida Department of Health is promulgating their new regulations for implementing amendment 2, and they are asking for feedback. Do you have an information sheet and/or email that we can forward to our personal contacts to encourage them to give feedback to the Department? I have made up an email to be sent out which focuses solely on their planning to give the Board of Medicine more power over doctors’ cannabis recommendations, but I would like something more official. (Also I’ve sent letters

    to the editor to 4 different newspapers.)

    Is their a organized effort that you know of to get supporters to the Department of Health’s workshops around the state 2/6-9?

    Thank you, Jim Funk
  • Hello there, my name is Matthew Haines. I am a part of a group of Veterans looking to open a Veteran Owned and Operated, locally owned dispensary in Bradenton Florida.

    I know there probably isn’t a whole lot of information out there available for us right now, but what can we do to prepare to fight for a license. I know a lot of larger, pre existing companies are going to try and gain a lot of ground in the state. But we want to have a fighting chance as the little guys, we served our country once, and we want to serve it again by bringing medical marijuana to those who could benefit from it, ourselves included as our motivation for this stems from our individual battles with PTSD.

    If you have any additional information other than what is on the website, I sure would appreciate any insight you could provide us.

    Thank you kindly.
  • I am a retired Registered Nurse and Medical Malpractice Defense Attorney. I believe that my education, training, and experience establish me as an asset to clients at a medicinal marijuana dispensary. I am seeking a dispensary in the North Miami area to assist with opening the establishment and to work with clients. Can you assist? Thank you.

  • I’m not sure you still are active but I can’t believe how the Dept. of Health gutted this. First, they require TERMINAL illnesses, not the DEBILITATING illnesses the Amendment require. I’m pretty sure they are breaking the law. They were tasked to set up a program, not interpret policy. Next, now you need 2 doctor recommendations. Whew. And no smoking?

    I would qualify as I have cerebral dysfunction and no balance. Cannabis COULD help me. But this has become a money issue, not a helping sick people issue. And sick usually can’t afford all these silly requirements, like going to 2 doctors annually and then paying the government for a card, annually.

    If your fine organization still has any input, that’s mine. Again, the Dept. of Health is screwing this all up instead of responding to that overwhelming , 71.32%, passage.

  • I am a software engineer in Jacksonville, FL and I would like to volunteer my talents to help the cause.
  • How do you become enlisted as a health professional. I am an RN and would be interested in adding my name to the list.
  • Please utilize this website to keep us informed of the events that occur and are scheduled to occur as amendment 2 gets implemented. Timeline of expected events. News of progress or lack thereof. Future milestones, etc.
  • In response to Leon Manko comments I can feel your pain in regards to the way the State of Florida legislature has established that only six (6) nurseries within the state can grown and distribute the medical marijuana. In fact I currently live in the Orlando area and the Know Nursery which is one of the approved nurseries in the state began selling and distributing medical marijuana to patients a few days ago as you can read in this news article

    Now trust me when I read this article I said to myself there is no way anyone whom wanted to open a medical marijuana clinic as an entrepreneur will have a fighting chance to stay in business to long. Simply because if the six (6) nurseries are not only growing medical marijuana but selling it to patients then these independent medical marijuana clinics will not stand a chance. Because with the nurseries being able to sell their product at their costs without any markup of any kind their pricing will be way lower then the independent medical marijuana clinics. Also I figure that all of the independent medical marijuana clinics whom purchase from them they will markup (G&A, Overhead, Profit, and etc.) the price of their product so that their product always sells for less which by doing so will drive out the competition.

    However since the State of Florida legislature is currently working on finalizing what is acceptable and what will not be acceptable under amendment 2 so it can be officially placed on the books as a law. I would hope and pray that they realize that if they do not exclude and restrict the six (6) nurseries from selling the medical marijuana to patients but only to medical marijuana clinics this could end up hurting many of these legislators the next time elections are held. Also I can not speak on the behalf of Mr. John Morgan but I am sure that many other attorneys throughout the state are eagerly awaiting on what will be listed in the amendment 2 once it becomes law. Because I am pretty sure if the law ends up favoring just the six (6) nurseries and not providing a path for free enterprise and entrepreneurship to take shape like it has in other states where medical marijuana has been approved then I am pretty sure the State of Florida will be hit with an abundance of lawsuits challenging the legislatures decision.
  • Ok now that the Amendment had passed , when will we see more physicians taking patients? I have breast cancer and have called numerous physicians to be told ,“sorry not taking new patients” or “the program is not up and running,yet”. Any thoughts?
  • I would like to know why we dont hear any news reports or articles about patients being able to cultivate their own medicine? It is clear that this was always the intention…to make this a monopoly in Florida. Putting money in front of the public interests. I would like to know what is being done, who is fighting for the rights of the 71% of Floridians who voted for a comprehensive medical marijuana program. I guarantee that those 71% of Floridians never thought their medicine would be monopolized by a half dozen nurseries around the state. What a garbage law that barely expands beyond what our garbage legislature set up for themselves. That by preempting a strict law which set up this restricted nursery type program, our legislature has effectively taken the wind out of the sail for millions of people who did not realize this was the intention all along. To dupe Floridians into giving all the marijuana growing privileges to just a few. Such garbage. Why haven’t we heard anything about this? Why no news coverage? Why hasn’t John Morgan come out in angry protest over this? Maybe John knew all along? Answers please!
  • Hello. I am a retired army veteran of 20 years. I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety, depression, TBI, among others. I’ve been prescribed medications, and, the side affects often were just as bad as the symptoms. So, when Florida passed amendment 2, I couldn’t be happier. Not only for myself, but for my fellow veterans.

    I would like to open a dispensary in Florida, to support my local veterans. It has been a dream of mine to give back to the veterans who have served our country. This will be my way. I need some help to make this dream happen. Investors, advisors, anything will be greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten. Thank you so much for your time.
  • I am a PA who is seeing patients now for access to care. Is there an effort to end this insane 90 day waiting period? Many of our patients don’t have 90 days. I’m heartbroken. Is there anything I can do to help you change this rule ?
