The recent updates to the Florida "medical" legalization laws are finally loosening up and it looks like you don't have to have a terminal illness anymore to qualify for products with higher THC. That's the good news...... This is supposed to be about compassionate care (In fact, "compassionate" is included in the legal descriptive name of many options/requirements) but the cost for the average low income patient seems to be out of reach. From what I could gather it will cost $75 to apply for the state registration and the average MJ doctor fee looks to minimally begin at $200. Lets round that up to $300 to get started. I did notice that some of the MJ doctors who advertise had a money back guarantee for their services. If you don't qualify you get your money back but I don't think it applies to the state registration fee. You also have to "re-qualify" via your MJ doctor every 210 days and the registration is only good for a year. None of the mainstream healthcare companies cover these fees. I'm thankful I can afford to pursue medical marijuana if I want to but I can't help but wonder what happens to the low income family who's child needs the help that cannabis can provide. I realize the cost of healthcare in the US is already a problem but without being able to grow your own how the heck is someone living paycheck to paycheck supposed to get this "compassionate care"? Is this the same in every state?
