TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA.com) - The Florida legislature passed a bill at the end of the session that approves the use of medical marijuana. Low THC pot would be used to treat epilepsy and cancer.
But, the bill puts restrictions on the production of the plant. The first restriction is that only growers that have been doing business in Florida for 30 continuous years may apply to grow medical marijuana. According to the Department of Agriculture, this narrows the list to 21 nurseries and growers in the state. There are only four in the Bay Area that meet the qualification.
