It's been a hard fight, but Amendment 2 has finally passed and patients and Florida will finally be able to get the relief they need. The Department of Health has 9 months to issue regulations for the legal manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of Medical Marijuana.
Medical Marijuana is already a 6 Billion Dollar Industry in the other states that have already legalized medical access. This industry isn't just about the cultivation and dispensing of marijuana. There are a lot of ancillaryindustries like tracking inventory, providing for the security of cultivators and distributors as well as supplies for the next users. Florida is no different, and analysts project that this industry will be a major source of revenue in Florida, on par with Tourism, Citrus, and Sugar.
Just because your business does not “touch the plant” doesn't mean that you are immune from regulation. Ancillary businesses also need to comply with state and local regulations in order to make sure that they can continue to thrive and grow with the industry.
