With more medical marijuana patients and doctors than ever, demand is soaring for cannabis products in the state of Florida. Although it's getting easier to obtain your marijuana license, supply is still relatively limited due to the state's strict vertical integration laws dictating who can grow, package, and distribute legal pot.
Luckily, with a newly-appointed cannabis director and agricultural commissioner Nikki Fried prioritizing better patient access to medical weed, it's only a matter of time before marijuana products are freely available to those who need it, whenever they need it. In the meantime, options to legally procure medical marijuana and CBD products in South Florida are steadily increasing.
