Our Vision - The Best in Care
Marijuana has been used for medicinal purposes for 4,000 years. It wasn’t until the 1940s (post-Prohibition), that powerful business interests successfully lobbied the United States Congress to move all derivatives of cannabis to a highly controlled status.
Since California first legalized cannabis for medicinal use in 1996, the tide has begun to swing back and extensive research over the course of the past 20 years has shown that this natural, organic substance has the potential to ease the suffering of individuals with chronic illnesses.
Our mission is to provide a better quality of life for our patients with debilitating illness by incorporating medicinal Cannabis into our treatment paradigm. With proper education and training, we also hope to further a better understanding by the general public of the positive uses of Cannabis therapy and dispel much of the negative propaganda associated with the medical use of marijuana.
Florida Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana Treatment
Florida legislated the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes in 2014 with the passage of the Compassionate Use Act. On November 8, 2016, voters overwhelmingly passed a ballot initiative to guarantee the right to use cannabis by individuals suffering from debilitating illnesses. Amendment 2 is now law and is found in Section 29, Article X of the Florida state constitution.
Florida Qualifying Conditions
