New changes to Florida’s medical marijuana laws


Florida Governor Rick Scott signed legislation Friday to implement the medical marijuana amendment voters approved last November.

Amendment 2, approved by 71 percent of the voters, took effect on January 3 and required that laws had to be in place by July 3 for how patients can qualify and receive the drug. Scott has noted that the constitutional amendment “was passed overwhelmingly” and said the law “make sense for our state.”

MAXhealth is committed to providing its patients with the most current and comprehensive information about the latest legal and clinical developments with all the care services.
