Florida Votes to Legalize Medical Marijuana

Florida Votes to Legalize Medical MarijuanaFlorida has voted to legalize medicinal marijuana for people with cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, AIDS, PTSD, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and similar diseases. Florida previously allowed medical marijuana for a narrow group of patients with cancer and severe spasms. “This is a major tipping point: With Florida’s decision, a majority of states in the U.S. now have laws allowing patients to find relief with medical marijuana, and these protections and programs are no longer concentrated in certain regions of the country like the West and Northeast,” said Tom Angell, chairman of Marijuana Majority, an organization working to change marijuana-related laws nationwide.
