    It looks like you may legally smoke your medicine in Florida now so we may start seeing flower available outside the pre-filled pods I've seen at dispensaries. Great news!

    It'll be even greater news when they expand the conditions that qualify for something other than low dose. I for sure won't be wasting my wife's time with the flower version of low dose cannabis.

    Thanks to @subway13029 I may not have to worry about low dose issues for much longer anyway but it would be wonderful if all doctor's were made to feel comfortable recommending something with THC in it when it's warranted.

    I'm convinced that my certifying neuro would have liked to certify my wife for something other than low dose if his rigid adherence to that f'n web site would have allowed it.

    Any idea when it will be available on the shelves? Although I would be VERY surprised if the anti-pot contingent (basically everybody in government in Florida) doesn't appeal the ruling and continue to thwart the will of the people.

    I mean seriously. 71% approved MMJ. I bet nearly as many are in favor of recreational as well. That 71% needs to get together and vote the bustards out.

    I can speak out freely on this wonderful forum about all kinds of possible adverse health issues related to ANYTHING cannabis...but as soon as I "open" my "mouth" among other Floridians about pushing the health benefits of patients using whole flower without combusting, I need to frame it for the majority that is pro smoking.

    It is weird that I can't suggest protecting the patient's right to choose the delivery device, or to choose the free market counterbalance to any government sanctioned corporate product, or even to take pressure off the current producers without having to "approve" more growers by allowing patient home grows as the most cost effective mode of scrutinized procurement....I mean what is the purpose of the state health department, anyway? I know they collect lots and lots of data because many of my neighbors work for them as data managers....and then I wonder why I am paying for extra doctors and extra licensing fees when they are not paying me for my data. My data.
