ORLANDO, Fla. — Florida patients have new limits on how much medical marijuana doctors can prescribe.
The legislature ordered the new dosage limits to reign in what it saw as potentially irresponsible overprescribing by some doctors.
Advocates say patients are now limited to only about a third of the dose they could get just last week.
“And we want to make sure that our patients who are trying to do the right thing never have to wonder about whether or not they have too much medicine and they’re over their legal limits or worse that they’re not going to get enough medicine,” said Jodi James, president of the Florida Cannabis Action Network.
Doctors can seek an exemption for patients they believe need to exceed the limits.
