Q&A on Medical Marijuana

With Monday’s Florida Supreme Court ruling that will allow medical marijuana on the November general election ballot, questions abound about who could use it and when -- assuming it passes, which requires a 60-percent margin.

If passed, state officials would work out many of the details, but in the meantime, the Tampa Bay Times offers a Q&A (paywall alert). It answers questions such as:

--Who could use medical marijuana? Answer: Those who have a doctor's certificate saying they qualify can get an ID card from the Department of Health.

--What if DOH's regulations effectively make it impossible to fill the prescription? Answer: Sue.
