Florida Medical Marijuana: How Do I Get It? Administrator July 15, 2017 In the News Last November, Florida voters overwhelmingly voted to allow medical marijuana to be available in their state. As most of us know, marijuana is a completely safe, organic plant that has been scientifically proven to have medicinal value in treating a number of conditions. The US Government has recently admitted that Cannabinoids may be useful in treating the side effects of cancer and in cancer treatment as well as cannabis may relieve pain and lower inflammation. These admission show that marijuana should not be considered a schedule 1 narcotic under US law. A schedule 1 narcotic, by law, is defined as having no currently accepted medical use. As we can all see, marijuana does have an acceptable medical use, so it should no longer be a classified a schedule 1 narcotic. Cocaine is currently a schedule 2 narcotic, and as such can be legally prescribed anywhere in the United States. It is mostly used in eye surgery to dilate eyes, and as a topical anesthetic. However, cocaine is still illegal for recreational use. At the very least, Marijuana should also be reduced to a schedule 2 narcotic. Over half the states in the US have now passed laws legalizing the medicinal use of marijuana against federal guidelines. This leaves the states at odds with the feds, and calls of “states rights” echoing in the streets again. Fortunately, in states that have legalized medicinal marijuana, if you have a medical marijuana card, you can legally posses and use marijuana. Local law enforcement will not harass you for it. Federal law enforcement still could, but it is unlikely that federal law enforcement will harass a regular person using medical marijuana to treat a medical condition. They will be more interested in growers and retailers, if anything. How Do I Get My Florida Medical Marijuana Card?
