As Florida continues to grapple with legalizing recreational marijuana, a handful of medical marijuana dispensaries have sprung up in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties to offer services to people who qualify.
Shops specializing in low or no-THC cannabidiol made from hemp, which doesn't make users high but might relieve what ails them, have also opened. Low-THC CBD products, which are legal and can be sold over the counter, are available in thousands of locations, from restaurants to convenience stores.
Since Florida voters approved legalizing medical marijuana for qualifying conditions in a 2016 referendum, the use of cannabis has become better accepted. Even more dispensary locations are expected to open South Florida in 2020.
