Look at all we've accomplished together!

Congratulations Florida on officially recognizing Medical Marijuana as a Constitutional Right! Many of us are not necessarily thrilled with certain parts of the Implementing Bill, but it's important to remember we made a huge impact on lawmakers and effectively expanded patient access through our community’s efforts. You can read the Bill in its entirety here (I would highly recommend it if you haven’t already!):  
This month marks 20 years for past-President Cathy Jordan and our current Executive Director Jodi James.  Twenty years ago, at an event organized by Mike Palmeri and a group known as FORML (Florida Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws), Cathy and Jodi met.
