Medical Marijuana And Cannabis Law

Florida voters recently backed an amendment to the state's constitution allowing for the use of medical marijuana to treat certain illnesses and injuries. Marijuana is still a banned substance under federal law, and strict regulations apply to doctors who wish to prescribe the drug as well as those who grow or distribute it. Those not in compliance with these rules could be facing substantial legal problems.
