Discussing Florida Marijuana Growing Licenses, Problems, and Issues
Discussing Florida Marijuana Growing Licenses, Problems, and Issues with the OMMU (Office of Medical Marijuana Use) and more with in-studio guest Dr. Barry Gordon. He discusses Florida Marijuana Growing Licenses, Dr. Gordon’s experience as a jury member on the Joe Redner Case, Problems and Issues with the OMMU (Office of Medical Marijuana Use) and more.
The Office of Medical Marijuana Use is charged with writing and implementing the department’s rules for medical marijuana, overseeing the statewide Medical Marijuana Use Registry, and licensing Florida businesses to cultivate, process, and dispense medical marijuana to qualified patients.
Dr. Barry Gordon, M.D. runs the Compassionate Cannabis Clinic in Venice, Florida. Dr. Barry, as he is affectionately known, is at the forefront of the medical cannabis movement. A 1981 graduate of the Ohio State University College of Medicine and a founding fellow of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine, Gordon said it wasn’t until decades into his medical career that he even began hearing the words “endocannabinoid system.”
“It was my career in emergency medicine that drove me to find an alternative for my patients and research cannabis more,” Dr. Barry explained. “I like to think of my background as a bit of a social scientist. I’ve seen the dangers of alcohol and tobacco. I like to tell my patients that you can’t even compare the intoxication effects of alcohol to cannabis.”
