What can I buy at a Florida dispensary?
This is not Snoop Dogg’s CVS. You’re not rolling in armed with your prescription and picking up an ounce of bud like it’s Seattle and you’re on your lunch break. Hell, you’re not even picking up a package of minty-delicious brownies like in some other medicinally-legal states. What you’re getting now are extracts, oils, tinctures, and as of earlier this year, smokable marijuana. Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill overturning the state’s ban on smokable marijuana in March this year (2019), allowing patients to buy 2.5 ounces of whole flower cannabis every 35 days. But Russell it still won’t be as simple to buy as it is in other states.
“Florida dispensaries are not Colorado dispensaries,” he says. “The product isn’t in a glass jar for examination. It’s packaged up tightly in containers you cannot see into, and sold by strain and weight so the patient isn’t sorting through the jar for their best-looking choice of product.”
