What is telemedicine? Have you had a telehealth visit with your doctor? I recently had a telehealth video call with my physician. I spent 20 minutes telling him how well I was, and that everything felt ok. Guess what? After 20 minutes, he said great, I said thank you, and he billed Medicare for the visit.

It’s a medical puzzle: Two people who outwardly seem a lot alike can take the same medication at the same dose but get different results. For one, the treatment is a roaring success. Yet for the other, it fails to work. What’s going on?

The cannabis industry has a cast of characters, each with a focused target on creating standard operating procedures to guide performance and production and improve their piece of the industry’s operating boundaries. For example, clinicians work to prescribe effective and safe dosages for medicinal purposes while patients seek relief from pain and disease symptoms.

Florida’s medical cannabis system may soon be found unconstitutional by the Florida Supreme Court. In a case called “Florigrown,” the court will soon rule after hearing a very unusual second round of oral arguments. Also unusual, it was the Justices who requested more time to hear additional arguments, not one of the parties.

What benefits do you see for patients throughout Florida within this space?
I believe cannabis offers tremendous health benefits for a variety of medical conditions and beyond. I don’t think we have even scratched the surface on the full capabilities of this plant.
