Can Florida Doctors Order Medical Marijuana?

Can Florida Doctors Order Medical Marijuana?

YES.     In June 2014, Florida’s ‘Charlotte’s Web’ bill was signed into law legalizing the ability of certified physicians to order low-THC marijuana for medical use in a select group of qualified patients. In 2016 the Amendment 2 ballot initiative was approved by 71% of Florida voters. Amendment 2 became effective in January 2017 and widely expands on the initial bill, granting the medical use of marijuana by any qualified Florida resident if deemed appropriate by a certifying physician. Medical cannabis orders, recommendations, certifications or authorizations are not technically 'prescriptions' as the the prescriptive authority for physicians, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), does not recognize marijuana as medicine.
