Are You Prepared for Medical Cannabis in Florida?

The future of cannabis medicine is here. On November 8th, 2016 Florida passed Amendment 2. Also known as the Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative, Amendment 2 aims to alleviate those suffering from debilitating conditions such as Glaucoma, Cancer, Epilepsy, HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Under the current measure, physicians will oversee all medical marijuana prescriptions. The amendment also indicates that the Department of Health has until July 3rd, 2017 to make the final regulations. However, healthcare professionals must begin preparing now.

In 2016 alone, there were an estimated 1,246,170 medical cannabis patients in the United States. These numbers are only expected to rise during 2017. Florida legislators recently passed two bills to expand the framework of a legal marijuana program, allowing up to 425 medical marijuana dispensaries in Florida, so healthcare professionals can expect to see a substantial increase in the number of patients seeking cannabis medicine. To meet this growing demand, professionals working in the healthcare industry must begin educating themselves as soon as possible.

HempStaff trainers all have a minimum of five years of experience working in the cannabis industry, with a minimum of two years as a dispensary manager.
