24 Applicants Drawn for Florida Medical Marijuana Program


Twenty Four applicants in Florida have applied for state licenses to grow non-euphoric marijuana and process and sell a medicinal marijuana in the form of oil that will be used to treat medical conditions such as epilepsy.

These commercial plant nurseries are spread out across five different regions in Florida and all are hoping to win a single licence that the state Department of Health will award each region. All five regions drew at least four applicants.

Florida has a newly-legalized, highly regulated and limited medical marijuana program. The Florida Legislature wrote those requirements into the enabling law in the spring of 2014 to make sure the licenses would go to time-tested, Florida companies. Only about 100 nurseries, out of 7,000 registered in Florida, were even eligible.

The Department of Health will select the winning proposals based on the final rules that were developed this spring. There is no set time for those decisions, but once the licenses are awarded, the nurseries have 60 days to begin cultivating their first crops, and another 150 days to offer the medicine for sale.
