The Basics: Amendment 2 is a voter-initiated constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana possession and use.
Amendment 2 establishes a caregiver-patient system for medical marijuana distribution. Caregivers must be 21 years of age, agree
to assist with a patient’s medical marijuana use, and receive a caregiver identification card by the Florida Department of Health
(DOH). The measure establishes Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (MMTC) that have the authority to acquire, cultivate,
process, transport, and sell all marijuana products. The measure does not cap how many caregivers a patient may have or how
many patients a caregiver may have. The measure does not cap or limit how much medical marijuana a patient may possess or
purchase, nor does it regulate the number of MMTCs allowed to operate. There is no age limit on possession or use of medical
marijuana under Amendment 2. Minors may use it with parental consent.
