We regret they seem to only be looking at one strain for one ailment when well over a million other patients in Florida would benefit as miraculously with their ailments. We all hope when it comes to HB 859 - Medical Use Of Cannabis, the Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act, the legislature has the same compassion, understanding and support for those that need a higher THC level like the cancer patients and so many others that suffer health ailments cannabis has shown to be so effective in helping improve their quality of life, or body‘s ability to function. Please let your representative know you support legalizing all the medicine for all the patients and would like them to pass HB 859 in the Florida House and SB962 in the Florida Senate.http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Representatives/representatives.aspxhttp://www.flsenate.gov/Senators not available Mar 05, 2014 Ron please feel free to contact me for help with your social media and pr.
