Oh, and we haven’t even discussed the cost of cannabis products. In a state that has a preponderance of retirees and unwell war vets, there’s a distressing abyss between the haves and have nots. Florida legalized medical cannabis only because its citizens pulled together to force the issue in a public referendum. Old conservative white male lawmakers continue to hog-tie availability, choice and then price the process out of the hands of those who need it but can’t afford it.
Yet, cannabis is here in the sunshine state – as it is in the majority of states (33) to varying degrees. Despite some states’ neanderthal anti-cannabis laws, insiders say there’s no holding back. Legalized cannabis brings an infusion of taxes to bolster suffering state economies, especially now in this COVID event. State legislatures, it’s said, will be forced to go with this low-hanging revenue catch.
If you want to connect some dots, ironically, COVID could be our ticket to broadened cannabis laws nationwide. Can you imagine a country whose citizens are fully out of the cannabis closet, joining in unison, “If they come and get me, they come and get us all!”
