On election day, Florida residents overwhelmingly voted to approve the legalization of medical marijuana — 71% voted in favor of Amendment 2. The Amendment was almost passed in 2014, receiving 57% of the vote, just 3% shy of the 60% requirement.
The Amendment allows doctors to prescribe cannabis for debilitating medical conditions, which includes cancer, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, hepatitis C, HIV, AIDS, ALS, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease or any other condition your physician believes the medical use of marijuana outweighs the potential health risk for the patient.
