Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia have created protections for patients who use cannabis. Organizations like the AMA, the American College of Physicians and many more support additional research into cannabis therapeutics. Last year, the Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act was introduced to support, protect and provide for Florida patients.
Did you co-sponsor this compassionate bill?
States have found recalibrating cannabis penalties to make possession a civil offense saved millions in the cost of investigation, prosecution, and community control without a significant increase in usage rates.
Do you support safer streets and saving money?
A petition to put cannabis on the November 2014 state ballot will cost over 10 million dollars and require collecting nearly 680,000 signatures from registered voters.
Do you think voters should be forced to put cannabis in the constitution?
Cannabis is a genus of plants. Strains of cannabis can be used for medical applications, while other strains are grown for durability and industrial uses. Cannabis grown for recreational use is breed for high levels of THC, the active ingredient in plant known for causing euphoria.
Did you know industrial hemp, medical cannabis and recreational use is different?
Industrial hemp is a half-billion dollar annual imported industry. Because hemp is wrongly classified with the medical and recreation strains of cannabis, farmers are denied participation in this world-wide market.
Will you sponsor a bill to open hemp farming opportunities for Florida?
