In November 2016, Florida citizens overwhelmingly voted to approve a constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana throughout the state. Although the laws and regulations are still developing, the opportunities in Florida are real as it’s poised to become one of the largest markets in the nation.
Currently, fully licensed Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers are open for business and helping patients throughout the state. In time, as the Florida legislature and Department of Health continue to develop the regulatory landscape, more licenses will be awarded. The application process is competitive, merit based, and ongoing.
Florida is a vertical integration state, meaning that every Medical Marijuana Treatment Center must be responsible for all aspects of the industry from seed-to-sale. In other words, growing, processing, infusing, dispensing, etc. are all conducted through one Medical Marijuana Treatment Center license. Every successful applicant, also enjoys the luxury of opening up to 25 dispensary locations throughout the state under the same license.
