Good morning! Today will be the start of a weekly post where we will go over the latest news and information concerning medical marijuana in Florida. Please feel free to send in your questions, comments, and concerns and we will do our best to address them in an upcoming post (Please don’t send any emergency messages or personal health information for security reasons).
-First, let us start with some fun stats: 135 pounds of medical marijuana and 6 pounds of low-THC medical marijuana was dispensed from March 22-March 28 by 2,125 qualified physicians. The current number of patients is 201,708. That means each doctor has prescribed about .066 pounds or 29,937 mg on average.

-The State has improved processing/wait times and the expected wait time for a completed application to be processed is currently 5 business days.
