Florida's medical marijuana: What's next – Orlando Sentinel – Orlando Sentinel
Election Day, Nov. 8, was a watershed for weed, not just in Florida, but nationwide.
Florida voters approved Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Medical Conditions — Amendment 2 — ushering in a constitutional amendment on medical marijuana.
Arkansas and North Dakota voters also passed medical pot measures. California, Maine, Nevada and Massachusetts legalized recreational marijuana.
As the Wall Street Journal noted, “The new laws make pot legal in some form in more than half the country — 28 states — redrawing the legal landscape and presenting a challenge to federal authorities.”
The challenge for Florida is immediate: What’s next after voters approved medical marijuana? What are the steps to implementation? What concerns should be followed up by the Legislature?
To discern what’s at stake, the Sentinel enlisted the policy director for the Drug Free Florida Committee and the lead consultant for the American Trade Association for Cannabis & Hemp for their opinions.
