It is easy to be discouraged about Florida’s medical cannabis system.
It is a system that has grown in baby steps to say the least. With only 13 licenses to grow and dispense cannabis given out in the state, and only 27 dispensaries opened in the state so far, it is hard to see much growth.
However, the demand for medical cannabis continues to grow. The number of patients in Florida’s medical marijuana registry shot past 70,000 last week, reaching 71,720 as of last Friday.
