    To whom it may concern,


    My name is Jason Marlow and I am in the process of completing my second masters degree in Public Administration here at FAU. I’m currently also doing political consulting and am extremely interested in lending my expertise to the fight for medical marijuana. This issue is personal for me, as a college student I roomed with an Iraq War Vet who served in Fallujah during “The Tip of The Spear”. Alcohol consumed him and the only timed he ever appeared to be at any form of peace was when he was under the influence of marijuana. I have extensively researched marijuana on an academic level and wrote an extensive analysis of Senate Bill 1250 or the Cathy Jordan Act when it was proposed several years ago. I would like to leave your organization with a copy of my resume as well as numerous writing samples for you to review. Thank you for your time and I look tremendously forward to hearing from you.

    Hey folks! Are you aware of the big healthcare conference at the Embassy Suites in West Palm, Feb. 16 and 17?

    My wife and I were deemed candidates for the Medical Marijuana Program. We both did our registration at the doctor’s office which was $150.00 each of money I really do not have just laying around. Then we had to send an additional $75.00 each to Tallahassee for the Identification Card…again money not easy to come by. This was over four weeks ago. Granted they did not cash the two $75.00 checks as of yet but the wait is way too long. We are hoping we can wean ourselves off Opioid medication or at the very least, use less of it. I was under the impression that Florida passed the Medical Marijuana Law at election time. So what’s the hold up? We did our part so DOH should get off their collective asses and do some work for us suffering in pain. Seems fair to me!

    My thirty days have passed and still no card. I then contacted the OMMU and was informed that my payment was uploaded, my picture was accepted, and my residence was verified. Everything was complete; however, I was then told it can take another thirty days for them to complete my registration for the card. This is very frustrating and stressful. I have no clue why we have to wait for the State to approve what my doctor prescribed me. The individuals at the OMMU are very nice and professional. I do feel sorry for them due to the task they have been given with a small staff. I have never been a single issue voter, but this whole process has guaranteed that I will not be voting for any incumbents from the Florida legislator in 2018. The Florida Executive and Legislative branches are to blame and they will only listen when we vote them out.

    First of all every time I call I get the same lady that is very rude and gives me different answers when I call. Last time I called she told me that after they start processing my money order it could take 30 more days after that which is false information. So I decided to call back later and just ask to talk to a supervisor she kept refusing to get a supervisor until I told her my name I told her I’m just a concerned Citizen and I would like to talk to his supervisor then she called me by my name so she already knew my name but was just being difficult with me. Finally I got to talk to a supervisor which confirmed that from the date you will apply online or the date that they receive your paper application it takes 30 days to get your card she even had my money order in her hand and I told her about the phone lady and she said she would inform her about the proper way to talk to people in the proper information about the card well it’s been 30 days and I still have no information. Did my complaining help any probably not it probably actually put me to the back of the line again. And if you do try calling them expect to wait on the line for lease an hour to an hour and a half and you’ll probably get the same lady that will tell you one thing one day and two weeks later when you call back to find out what’s going on she’ll tell you something different. My application is complete and approved they told me they just needs to process my money order well she had it in her hand 2 days before the 30 days was up and still nothing good job Florida for dropping the ball as always.

    Now you’re soliciting contributions to help patients get access to medical marijuana in big money cities like Boca Raton, Coral Gables, with moratoriums on dispensaries. Contribute to the fight.


    What about helping citizens in the area where I live with no dispensary? We should help others and go without? I really get the impression you have made a lucrative ’non profit’ career of this issue with substantial investment potential. And of course some other controversial issue to follow.


    I have paid a doctor hundreds of dollars, obtained a recommendation, been registered, and applied for ID. However I am still unable to get any medicine because I have not received an ID and there are no local dispensaries. Perhaps to guarantee them additional profit of delivery fees that I can’t afford on disability. I also have privacy issues, questions and concerns about security of deliveries.


    What about the $75 per year cost of registry ID, that starts running when the doctor issues the recommendation to the registry, not when you are finally issued an ID. Up to 2 months or more time you are paying the ID fee, but cannot obtain medicine.


    What about the fact no one is being told there is a process they can petition for modification or waiver of the $75 ID application fee?


    Florida had made this the most unbelievable blunder yet witnessed.

    You do not have my support. You supported a totally corrupt bill that gave control of the MM industry to a select few farmer. They paid for and got the loyalty to legislators. We can look forward to little selection poor quality and over price property. You failed the people of florida.

    John Morgan I am sure is or has already invested in one of the current or future licenses, corruption has permeated both sides

    What a shame!

    Randall Mobbs & Shane Kapoi I’ll answer your question since nobody running this site will take the time to do so… the answer is no, you can not have a CWP and a MM card, the state will revoke your CWP if you apply for a MM care card and the federal government does not allow sales of any firearms to a person that reply’s in the affirmative to the "Do you use marijuana or other "illegal " drugs" question on the paperwork filed when you purchase a firearm.

    Hi,

    What a joke and con this whole “Florida for care” scam has been. First we are offered up to the moneyed interests that will supply us with we could very EASILY GROW OURSELVES AS MANY PATIENTS DO IN OTHER ACTUALLY CARING STATES. Second you are feeding off the sick people in order to fill your own pockets, I’ve not seen 1/10 of the adverts on TV about this issue as I do for the law firms “For the People” campaign. Clearly you are hitting up for cash the folks that can least afford it with your high expectations, while you set very mediocre goals. It is not honest nor is it fair…

    You have failed despite getting the votes for your very weak and toothless goals that will only profit the greedy "distributors , if it even survives.

    At this point remove me from your mailing list. Dealing with you is more aggravation then it is worth and it is sad to see sick folks used once again to put money into the pockets of the rich and greedy…

    “For the People” is a joke and far from the truth, and the fact that I never got a response to any of my email’s on the subject shows I’m correct, as the begging for cash email’s keep rolling in without ever getting a response.

    As someone that hunts and likes to also shoot firearms recreationally. I am wondering will I be able to buy a firearm or have my concealed carry permit if I have a medical marijuana card? I would appreciate if someone can answer this question. I keep getting very conflicting answers regarding this issue. I don’t think I should have to give up a right to gain a right.

    Dear Florida For Care,


    I have a few questions that hopefully you can help set myself at ease. I have been reluctant to apply for MMJ prescription because I have a CWP. I have been in several motorcycle accidents and am in constant pain daily. I do not like being under the influence of my current prescribed narcotics and would prefer treatment that is more beneficial to daily life, ie. working, driving, enjoying myself. Under current prescriptions this simply is not the case. I do believe that MMJ would help me with the pain, but also relieve me of the “drugged” feeling I get through narcotics. Im writing to find out everything I can before I make the plunge and apply for MMJ to help with my condition. Do you know of any legislation that will protect other like myself that seek better and safer drug alternatives? I do not want to lose my CWP license or subsequently be charged with a felony for owning/possessing firearms after getting MMJ prescription. Any help you can provide on this subject would be appreciated.

    How can I help? My husband and I sold our home after 17 years when Amendment 2 didn’t pass in 2014. I am a Licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida. I have had Juvenile Rheumatoid arthritis since the age of 14. I have had both my ankles replaced as I could no longer walk. I take Chemo drugs that take 6 hours to receive through IV. I am not against western medicine. HOWEVER, I found out through my teenage son trying to help his mother who was lying in bed with such pain to “just eat the candy” that Was made with marijuana. Well I ate the candy. OMG. I WAS LAUGHING! Smiling. The pain was still there but it was in the back of my mind. I had ENERGY. My husband came in and I have him some. BLAST. That’s what we had. We went out. We went swimming. We had a GREAT day. Since then my QUALITY OF LIFE has increased tenfold. We sold our home in Jan 2015. Moved to California. After 2 years we moved to Oregon were we could grow our own medicine. Marijuana has allowed my 23 year old son the ability to eat. His esophagus stopped working at the age of 11. He has Achalasia which is a rare swallowing disorder. No body should have to uproot there lives to be able to take care of themselves in the best way that individual deems right. I could go on and on. Bottom line if anyone needs my/our help in advancing the legal rights of marijuana, we are here.

    We see a major upside to the lack of bill passage for Amendment 2:


    For our full commentary, backed up by published research papers, please visit our web site and sign our petition: https://www.enacta2.com/


    The upside we see is now we have a chance to make real medical marijuana happen in Florida! While it’s sad no bill passed, in the end the bill that comes out will be much better for patients, which is all that matters.


    The current bills were so bad they should have not have been passed, with the exception of SB 614, which is a our preferred bill. Other than SB 614 no bill attempted to help patients in earnest, for example, they banned vaporizing dried plant material (‘buds’) and propped up the cartel system.


    Supporting the cartel system is a deal-breaking issue many people seem to misunderstand, and that Mr. Pollara understands well: forcing full-vertical integration and limiting the number of companies to just a few ensures highest prices, lowest access, lowest availability, and most limited product range. All of which are terrible for patients who want the best chance of finding a beneficial effect from medical marijuana. And THAT’s why we’re all here, right? …


    So, it seems that without action by legislators, the Florida Department of health will promulgate rules that are not constitutional, and lawsuits will be filed. It seems to us that the courts may be the best place for us to get the real medical marijuana we deserve.

    Pollara,

    Your a piece of crap for doing what you’ve done over the medical marijuana amendment . I hope to see you in court with the rest of the backstabbers that have taken from everybody that contributed to the cause to get AMENDMENT #2 PASSED!

    Now return all the money people sent to you to get this done,

    Hope I hear in the near future that John Morgan takes you too court.

    Ben,

    I have called Senator Torres’ Office in Tallahassee and left a personal message with Senator Torres’ Aide. I also emailed Senator twice, once from my phone and once from my laptop (I attached a copy of my FL Voter ID Card (DEMOCRAT) I also copy, pasted and shared your latest email in regards to Senator Bradley’s Bill SB406 on Facebook.

    Can you PLEASE give more specifics in your emails when you ask us to email or call our legislators? We can’t just say “Fix the bill!” We have to ask for what we specifically want and it’s your job to keep up with the status and then inform us of those current specifics. I took a minute and found a recent article today but most days I have no time for that and most other people probably don’t either.


    Make it easy for us to sound informed and persuasive and we’ll call. Make it hard and many will just hit delete (and stop donating.)

    I just wanted to pass on a little feedback. Today, in response to your email in reference to HB1397, I emailed my representative, Frank White. I sent out my email at about 930am. I received an actual response about 3 hours later, not an auto-generated reply to say that thanks for the email. It was a positive response. Mr. White said that he is currently studying the issue and learning more about it. He also stated that the people spoke in 2016 and that he would oppose anything that’s not consistent with the voters’ intent. While that can be taken any number of ways, I am hoping for the best. I certainly did not expect a response this fast and truly appreciated it. Maybe this feedback will encourage others to speak out knowing that their representatives, Mr. White at least, are actually listening.
