Bans, Moratoriums, and Raids
What cities are trying to avoid
All across Florida cities are implementing bans or moratoriums.
We always hope to see the word "temporary" as this implies the city is preparing for implementation of Amendment 2. It's when we see the word "permanent" that we get concerned.
Medical Marijuana in Florida received more votes in support than any other issue/candidate in November of 2016. Cities are taking note of that, and preparing for implementation, licensing, zoning, and the plethora of questions they have coming their way. It's not an easy process.
By implementing a temporary ban or moratorium they are stopping the licensing department from issuing licenses and give the licensing department an answer for people who call or inquire. This is part of a process and it is intended to allow the city to accommodate the new Will of The People.
Permanent bans go directly against the voters wishes, and must be approached logically and rationally to suit the needs and concerns of all. Permenent bans are most concerning as those cities are not following the will of their voters, and citizens need to address their commissions to educate, and remedy the situation at hand.
There are Floridians in every city across our great state who need access to this plant to treat their conditions. We hope that those cities with bans in place will contact us and allow us to educate them and aid in assuaging the concerns of the locals while ensuring patient safety and access.
When birthing a new industry, it is imperative that rules and regulations are clear and concise. Especially in an industry where people can go to jail if things go wrong, or rules are not followed very closely.
Already we have had at least one shop in Florida open without a license, get raided, and get closed down. See links below.
