Florida could be the next state to legalize marijuana for medicinal use.
It’s estimated seven out of 10 people polled would support a recent bill proposed in the State Senate.
Irvin Rosenfeld has been legally lighting up since 1983. He was part of a short-lived federal program that studied whether cannabis can be used to treat patients suffering from debilitating illnesses. He receives the drug from the federal government once a month.
Rosenfeld suffers from a rare disorder where tumors grow on his bones. He says he relied on a host of narcotics in his 20’s, but says the cannabis saved his life.
“I’ve not had a new tumor since I was 21, or have had an existing one grow since I was 21 and the doctors don’t know why. I do, it’s the cannabis,” says Rosenfeld.
It’s for patients like Rosenfeld that State Senator Jeff Clemens (D-Lake Worth) introduced a bill to legalize the drug in Florida.
