Medical marijuana


In the fall of 2016, Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment approving medical marijuana. Afterwards, state lawmakers grappled for months on how to enact the wishes of the voters. It took a special session of the legislature to finally pass some rules regarding the new law. This sign is in the window of one of the new clinics.

I did not know there are entire clinics devoted only to this!

...I wonder how long this will last.

I mus t be behind the times as I didn’t know this had been passed!

They were waiting for a sign from their god and their god still ain't sure about that maryjane stuff and it's really hard to the Florida legos to get off their butts and do anything, which is usually a good thing because most of what they do is less than useless and causes great pain among a majority of the population.

Em Portugal está-se a discutir também este assunto.
Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

We don't have special shops for treatment, but have so called "coffeeshops" where soft drugs are for sale for everyone.

This is excellent news. I think sufferers of MS have found marijuana helps ease the symptoms. It’s a difficult issue to put into law. I think there has been discussion about it here in the UK but I don’t think any headway has been made to actually legalise it.

I did not know they finally did something, i knew it passed but last i heard they were fighting over how to do it.

It's retarded that a bunch of social-conservatives thought they knew better than a doctor...

I'm pretty sure it's still illegal for the med version in SC.

Marijuana will be totally legal here starting some time next summer.

The same thing happened here much to the consternation of our very conservative legislators. Citizens also did an initiative to raise the minimum wage which passed overwhelmingly and now legislators want to pass a law to stop citizen initiatives. It's funny how they only believe in democracy when it's their causes at stake.

The medical marijuana has been allowable here for some time, and in general it'll soon be legalized. I would personally never use the stuff, but it shouldn't be criminalized.

Tanya Breese said...

I really don't understand the big debate over it....especially for medicinal purposes...I think it's legal in DC and I have seen dispensaries in NC....it's so confusing which states allow it now!

Interesting. I Have used the CBD lotion for pain and it does work.
Neat old Fridgidare. I didn't know general Motors mad it.

With certain prescriptions you can get it here since the start of 2017, too, otherwise it´s illegal.

My husband who has Lyme Disease and associated problems has his medical marijuana card. I never thought I'd live to see the day. I am so glad it's here.

We live in Oregon so we're a couple of steps ahead (?) .... its funny how all the ads (for both medical and recreational) always show happy joyful 'normal' people. But users we see on the street don't quite look like that. We are trying to make up our minds about how to think-- at this point I think I approve of medical.

Interesting. With our government we'll have to wait a long time for something like that.
