Medical marijuana is now legal in Florida thanks to portions of Amendment 2 taking effect.
The new law allows those who receive a recommendation from a physician to possess and use cannabis and cannabis products for medical use. It also legalizes a regulated system of dispensaries to distribute the medicine.
Although this system isn’t expected to be in full operation until next year; the state does currently have some medical cannabis dispensaries thanks to a 2014 law. However, they are currently only allowed to distribute cannabis products that are low in THC.
