  • Legalization of Cannabis in Florida 2017

    cannabisThe state of Florida has long contained a large number of marijuana proponents, all vying for legalization. When last year the bill; namely Amendment 2, was passed, it came as a glimmer of hope for Florida residents; a hope for a future when marijuana is not cracked down upon, and recreational as well as medical marijuana will not be heavily regulated.

    Expectations were rife, but now it seems that Floridians may not be able to enjoy marijuana as freely as they thought they would. And while the bill does make some allowances, they are neither as expansive, nor as non-restrictive as one may expect.

    A 71 Percent Majority Vote

    The announcement of the vote brought about a wave of excitement in the local Floridian community. Many assumed that the will of the people will finally be listened to, and cannabis will be made legal once and for all, within certain limitations of course. This was due to a sudden drive to lobby for legalization in Florida, after states, some smaller than Florida, already enjoyed legal cannabis.

    Finally, when the voting results came in, a massive 71 percent voted in favor of legalization. It has to be noted here that Florida plays host to a massive retiree population, most of whom have expressed opposition to the recreational use of cannabis. This can also be deemed as the reason why Amendment 2 did not get passed with an even bigger vote.

    Allowances made in Amendment 2

    Amendment 2, within the Florida Constitution, gives allowance to qualified physicians to certify for the medical use of marijuana. These were only for individuals who suffered from potentially debilitating conditions, and those who otherwise required very heavy doses of painkillers and related medication to aid in the treatment of their conditions.

    The bill was finally signed on June 23rd, 2017, by the Governor of Florida. Almost instantly, there were proposed regulations being announced, mostly based on the medicinal use of marijuana. Chief among the regulations was the definition of ‘debilitating medical conditions’, equating them to ‘medical conditions’.

    Overall, the regulation is being seen as far too strict, and in favor of certain individuals in positions of power who would otherwise benefit, from strictly regulating cannabis usage, whether it is recreational or medical.

    General Opinions regarding the Strict Regulation

    The general opinion regarding the marijuana regulation is that Florida has played host to the criminal import of marijuana and other hard drugs, as well as operations of cartels. This is being seen as a ploy to maintain the status quo, as well as the profits that certain officials and individuals make from the existence of this status quo.

    On the other hand, it is admitted that the legalization in Florida is bound to raise a significant amount in taxes, as well as open up myriad new businesses across the state, providing employment to those seeking it within the industry. Whether or not these proposals are entertained in the future remains to be seen.
