Amendment 2 was a constitutional amendment passed by popular vote on November 8, 2016. It is now found in Article X, section 29 of the Florida constitution.
This amendment will open up additional diagnoses for consideration of medical cannabis treatment after January 3rd, 2017. These conditions include PTSD, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, Crohn’s disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.
While there are potentially other conditions that could be treated with medical cannabis based on the phrasing of Amendment 2, MCC of Florida will await clarification from the Office of Compassionate Use and/or the Florida legislature before scheduling any patients with conditions not specifically listed in either the 2014 legislation or Amendment 2.
