Several states passed marijuana-related measures Tuesday night, Florida among them.
For those who live in a place where recreational marijuana passed, congratulations. You now have weed on the same level legally, approximately, as alcohol — so long as you never leave your state with any of it.
But for those (such as Florida) that passed medical marijuana, please be careful.
It’s a fact that many people go get an “excuse prescription” for medical weed. An “excuse prescription” is one for which the justification medically is tenuous at best, and might be complete nonsense. I’m not talking about the kid with epileptic seizures that nothing else helps, or the cancer patient who has zero appetite and horrible pain, both of which are materially improved by using a vaporizer or consuming a weed-laced brownie.
