In the summer of 2014, the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act was signed in the State of Florida allowing qualified physicians to provide recommendations for the use of low-THC medical marijuana to qualified patients. The specific conditions for qualification were classified around those of the most debilitating types, and it wasn’t until January 3, 2017 that Amendment 2 was passed and expanded the list of conditions for which Florida medical marijuana doctors could qualify patients.
The Florida Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions are now open to the medical judgement of the physician and the language “other debilitating medical conditions of the same kind or class as or comparable to those enumerated” means that more patients can potentially get medical marijuana cards for their ailments.
