Florida Medical Marijuana Myths
Medical Marijuana is now legal in Florida and many people have their own ideas and interpretations about it. There are many myths surrounding medical marijuana. We have listed some of the most common myths and why they are false below.
- “I don’t have a marijuana card, but since the law passed, I really don’t need one to possess marijuana.” Florida passed Amendment 2 for marijuana usage, but it is intended for medical purposes. My Florida Green is here to help you legally obtain a medical marijuana card from a licensed and reputable doctor!
- “Medical marijuana cards are hard to obtain due to the lack of licensed doctors.” There are over 2,000 medical marijuana doctors in the state. These doctors are certified to prescribe patients medical marijuana. How do you find these doctors? My Florida Green is here to help you!
- “I have my medical marijuana card, but where can I legally purchase weed?” Dispensaries are becoming prevalent in most areas, with an increasing number of them being set to open. To help you out, My Florida Green has a guide to help you locate the nearest reputable dispensary.
- “Medical marijuana is a gateway drug.” This is false. Opioids and prescription drugs have negative effects on various body systems, but cannabis does not. Numerous case studies have shown that prescription drug abuse is a serious problem. Cannabis is a safe and natural alternative.
