How To Get Rich In The Medical Marijuana Business (or Go Broke Trying) | New Times Broward-palm Beach

I would jot down ‘delivery of home health care products.’ It’s innocuous but honest.” Medical Marijuana His talk hints at the weird world of the medical marijuana biz. Pot is still illegal at the federal level but legal as medicine in 21 states and as a recreational drug in two. Meanwhile county, city, and town governments are all struggling to regulate an industry that has suddenly transformed from outlaw venture to respectable business. This November, Florida could become the 22nd state to legalize medical marijuana if more than 60 percent of voters approve an amendment to the state constitution. The ballot language removes state criminal penalties for patients who have a “debilitating medical condition,” for their physicians and caregivers, and for any “medical marijuana treatment center” that registers with the state. The amendment specifies that the health department will have six months to set up regulations including a definition of how much pot is an “adequate supply” of marijuana per patient and nine months to start issuing patient identification cards. A “debilitating medical condition” is defined in the amendment to include HIV, AIDS, hepatitis C, Crohn’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and “other conditions for which a physician believes that the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for a patient.” Assuming the amendment passes and there’s a good chance it will, as polls are clocking support between 64 and 78 percent of the vote anyone who starts a medical marijuana business could make an astronomical amount of money.
