Helping Businesses and Doctors Who Support Patients’ Rights
Medical marijuana is in the forefront of Florida politics. Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014 currently allows use of low-potency marijuana to treat patients suffering from cancer and conditions that cause seizures or severe and persistent muscle spasms.
However, voters defeated Florida Amendment 2 during the 2014 midterm election that would have expanded the rights to use marijuana for treatment. The Florida Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative may appear again on the 2016 November ballot and lawmakers have proposed adding diseases for which marijuana treatment is legally available and permitting various other types of cannabis to be prescribed.
Knowing your rights in this quickly changing industry is confusing and yet vitally important. A mistake could put a law-abiding business owner in murky legal standing. A business owner may face criminal charges for an inadvertent, innocent action and a medical professional might risk her or his license.
Walser & Herman Law Firm makes sure your business is in total compliance with the law. Our attorneys explain your rights as they are now and keep you updated on new developments. Our goal is twofold — to make sure your business always remains within its legal rights and to help your business succeed.
