Medical Marijuana Bill Introduced in Florida

On Monday, cops raided the home of Cathy Jordan, president of the Florida Cannabis Action Network, and seized all her pot after a government employee who was visiting a neighbor spotted some marijuana plants on her property.

Turns out, Jordan has Lou Gehrig’s disease and uses the marijuana as treatment.

So, on Wednesday, State Sen. Jeff Clemens decided to step up and do something about it.

Clemens, a Democrat from Lake Worth, introduced a bill in Jordan’s name that would allow patients with certain qualifying medical conditions to privately possess up to four ounces of marijuana and grow up to eight marijuana plants.

The introduction of the the bill comes a day after the release of a poll showing that 70 percent of Florida voters support passage of a medical marijuana law.

The bill, S.B. 1250, is called “the Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act.”
