Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014

The Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014 created a law allowing Floridians with certain qualifying medical conditions to obtain medical marijuana from state-licensed dispensaries. On January 3, 2017, this Act will be replaced by Amendment 2.

Patients with a terminal illness can obtain medical marijuana with THC, the psychoactive substance in marijuana. Patients with a non-terminal illness can obtain medical marijuana that is high in CBD and low in THC, making it non-psychoactive. (Dried marijuana flowers must contain 0.8% or less THC and more than 10% CBD, weight for weight.)

Qualifying medical marijuana patients can obtain medical marijuana from any of the dispensaries located throughout Florida. Patients cannot grow marijuana.
