BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Florida Department of Health wants Floridians to speak up on Amendment 2 and will hold five public forums statewide to help voice concerns over the rocky implementation of medical marijuana in the Sunshine State.
Florida For Care, an arm of People United For Medical Marijuana, sent out an email urging Floridians to attend the five workshops which will be held next week in Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa and Tallahassee.
The point of the workshops, Florida For Care says, is to help the public “voice their concerns” over how the Florida Department of Health is implementing Amendment 2.
So far, the group says the department is doing an awful job.
“With over 71 percent of Florida voters passing Amendment 2 in 2016 we thought that the will of the people would be followed,” wrote FFC spokesperson Ben Pollara in an email to supporters Wednesday.
