Here’s What’s New In Florida’s Medical Marijuana Amendment

FLORIDA:  Medical marijuana is close to being back in the hands of Florida voters, but this time around, the amendment has new wording.

Here’s what’s new, according to Ben Pollara, campaign manager of medical marijuana organization United for Care:

  • The original amendment allowed five medical marijuana patients per caregiver, but now it says the Department of Health decides the number of patients per caregiver.
  • The Department of Health can perform background checks on caregivers, per text of the amendment.
