I just read about the case. It involved a 74 year old Tampa man with stage 4 lung cancer whose doctors had prescribed medical marijuana. He uses the whole plant in juicing.
Judge gives green light for Tampa strip club owner to grow marijuana
Dispensaries are currently only allowed to sell oil. The dispensaries are few and far between, tightly regulated, and hugely expensive.
This same judge is also presiding over the suit brought by John Morgan contending the current state of affairs with MMJ is unconstitutional.
The judge wrote a 22 page finding and states the Department of Health is violating the state constitution in placing all their regulations on MMJ making the Amendment 2 passed by over 72 percent in the 2016 election to be useless and moot.
She (the judge) in her written opinion, knowing appeals would be immediate and inevitable, also warned against "judge shopping" by those appealing. She also points out the Department of Health has failed to meet those standards laid out in the Amendment which clearly states unless a plan is devised their regulation becomes void.
The regulations the Department did lay out have been stiff and physically impossible. Like mandating there only be 5 production facilities statewide and that no production companies can also operate dispensaries.
I do see some hope in this finally coming to a head. The Department of Health has clearly been acting in an unconstitutional, law breaking manner.
Like usual, you can follow the money to see why. Big pharma owns Governor Scott and owns the state.
But if the judge ruling holds, maybe the tide has turned. And the sick people and the majority in Florida will finally get the justice they voted for.
I can't decide which I like better: either, arguing on the internet is like winning in the Special Olympics, you might win but you're still retarded; or never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience; or you can't fix stupid, so why argue with it? They all are funny, and all are true too.
