When Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law on March 18, 2019, that lifted the ban on smokable cannabis, the news was nearly as celebrated as when Florida voters approved medical marijuana by a hefty margin back in 2016. The decision to allow smoking whole-flower cannabis adds more options and affordability for Florida’s medical marijuana patients who, until now, have been limited only to low-THC tinctures, capsules, and concentrates for vaping. “Patients visiting our dispensary have expressed strong interest in smokable medical marijuana,” said Craig Evans, dispensary manager of Curaleaf’s dispensary in Lake Worth. “Many are in the process of meeting with their physicians to discuss if smokable medical marijuana is an option for their treatment plan.” In its 2018 annual report, Florida’s Physician Certification Pattern Review Panel reported that the state had nearly 180,000 registered medical marijuana patients — a number that tripled in 2018 from the previous year. More than 48,000 of them are certified to use cannabis for pain-related conditions. Florida Woman Becomes Medical Cannabis User, Advocate After Brain Injury
