Florida: Health Officials Enact Emergency Rules Imposing Cannabis Dosing Limits for Qualified Patients

“These arbitrary and unnecessary limits were established without input from either the patient community or from those physicians who specialize in providing oversight to medical cannabis patients.

Such actions will ultimately be far more productive than calling for a return to the failures of marijuana prohibition.
