    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.


    Thank you for your continued efforts!

    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.

    Last year it took me 50+ days to get an appt with Dr, then I had 90 day wait time, then Dr approved CBD, then I had to apply and now they say there is a 14 day processing time for payment. Rx is only for 45 days per FL law. By the time I am able to buy meds my Rx will expire. The Office of Compassionate use is not taking phone calls or returning messages.

    Once Amendment 2 is implemented the office will not be able to handle any applications, they are failing under the old system now.

    Looks like I am not the only person unable to get CBD under current system.

    If it continues this way we should just legalize recreational pot so that the persons needing medicine can get what their Dr prescribed instead of waiting months on end.

    There is no justification for the 90 day wait, the 14 day wait to process a payment or the time it takes the mail to get to the OCU. Once your Dr has prescribed it you should be able to get it while the State does their paperwork.

    I am on the OCU list of qualified patients but still cant get meds until the State finishes up the paperwork.

    How does the legislature plan on serving the public’s needs by using a vertical market? The market needs to be horizontal. Even if designated by population, please look at what other states have promulgated as to the size of the constituency versus the number of dispensaries. Growers should grow it and sellers should sell it and in the middle there should be a delivery service for those individuals that are home bound or non-ambulatory in any way. These patients in many cases do not have transportation to get to a location miles and miles away from where they live and the only solution is to have a bone-fide delivery service that operates within the law and the rules as the legislature sees fit. But to not have these types of services available to the public is a disgrace for any legislator.

    I do not understand why if this Law was passed, why is it that more money is needed to continue the battle of Admendment 2? If the Law was passed, the Politicians are required to make sure everything is set up and implemented!! They already had the Growers approved and the Growers have spent millions implementing their Growing Operation for Medical Marijuana per the FL State Laws and Requirements. Everything is set up & ready to go, The Dispensaries are ready to open, ( which they also spent a lot of money to prepare their facilities per the State Laws), and where are our State Law Makers & Politicians?? We know Pam Bondi was Never for this and does not care what happens with this, as any moron knows her real sites are for her term to end as being on Mr. Trump’s Team is more important!! Many FL Citizens whom are very ill with serious conditions, whether it be Seizures, All Cancers, Parkinsons, Serious Eye Problems, PTSD, MS, Fibromyalgia, and any other Nerve Diseases, Severe Spasms, and the list goes on and on!!! What Truly Is The Problem?? They see all the other States that have SUCCESSFULLY implemented their Laws for Medical Marijuana, and I do not understand why they cannot follow up on each State’s Laws, Read Them All, Take What You Like From Them, and then add what you would like to see for FL!!! It Is All Just Bullshit, To Keep Stalling!!

    I am wondering why the state is holding up processing my check for my ID card. My doctor had a plan with me to help me come off of narcotic pain medicine (as my choice) which includes spinal injections, massage, new medicines, including medical marijuana. I don’t know what to do and their failure to simply cash my check is really literally hurting me. My husband sent in another check with priority mail tracking yesterday but I was hoping you knew what the hold up is. It is not right

    Hello, I am Bruce Narkiewicz, I am 62 yrs. old and a Disabled Vietnam Veteran. I joined the Navy at age 18 in 1973. I was assigned to an aircraft carrier as a jet mechanic. I was injured when after we filled the jet canopy with over 3000 lbs of air pressure, the partner I was working with, accidentally hit a wrong button while I was standing on top of the pilot’s sit cleaning the inside of the canopy, the canopy slammed down on top of my upper back and neck and pinned all my fingers inside. The Ship’s surgeon told me I should have been killed by the weight of the canopy and by how fast it had come down on top of me, but I had been a weight lifter, body builder, football player and wrestler all through high school, so I was very fit. I was given a Medical Discharge in 1975. I was able to work in the Miami, FL area for over 30 years as a specialist in the cultivating and growing of orchids and other tropical plants. By the year 2005, I could barely get out of bed each morning as the pain was becoming unbearable, and I was laid off of my job. In early 2007 I was finally accepted by both the Navy and the Federal Government to be Disabled. For over those past 30 years, I have been on different medications for chronic pain, anxiety, hyper tension, nerve damage, muscle spasms, fibromyalgia and PTSD. I hate taking these medications and especially the side affects you get from them! For years, on and off, I have tried marijuana, and have noticed when I take a few small pipe fulls a day, I do not need to take as many of my pain or anxiety medications, nor do I have the side or residual affects! It is ridiculous that the State of FL is not listening at all to the wants of their citizens!!! How can you deny people with serious health conditions a natural plant that, at this time does not show to harm the person, but has been proven time and time again to help with these conditions and tell them instead they must take their FDA approved chemical medicines that time and time again have shown to be very harmful and even DEADLY to the patients!!!! This is the reason why so many people are moving out of FL, having to leave their jobs, loved ones, or sometimes moving their whole families to States that offer Medical Marijuana!!! I and many more FL residents like me can only pray that the FL Politicians will change and educate their ignorant minds to see how the other States and many other Countries can see how useful Marijuana is not only medically but for many other reasons, that would give a lot of job opportunities for our State and Country!!!

    Finally got an appointment for my Doctor’s recommendation coming at the end of this month. My concern now is that I pay a bunch of money for 3 months then they decide what is best for me. Dr’s have been deciding what is best for years in terms of opiates and psych meds. We all see how that worked out…
