Senate to vote on Medical Marijuana bill

The State Senate is expected to make a final vote Monday on medical marijuana. If the bill goes through, it will make full-strength medical marijuana legal for terminally ill people.

Nearly two years after passing a law to allow limited types of medical pot like non-euphoric cannabis, the House approved a more far-reaching plan on Thursday.

This new plan would revamp the 2014 law and be more involved.

“There are alternatives to doing what we’ve done that work. They have been proven to work in 20-something states across the U.S. We here in Florida, at the behest of the House, decided to do something different,” said Senator Jeff Clemens from Palm Beach County expanding on the bill.

The old law has been held up because of legal fights over nurseries growing the substance and the Florida Department of Health. It was supposed to make non-euphoric cannabis available to patients who suffer from cancer or chronic seizures, but the substances still haven’t reached patients.
