Florida Senate Approves "Charlotte's Web" Medical Marijuana Bill

 

The strain of marijuana - you might better know it as the Mary Jane - that has been called the Charlotte's Web strain is extremely close to being legalized in the state of Florida; the State Senate approved the measure and now is only waiting on Gov.Rick Scott's signature. 

Charlotte's Web is a particular strain of marijuana with really low tetrahyrocannabinol, or THC. In other words, you can't get high from it. This strain is used purely for medical purposes. 

The strain was named after Charlotte Figi who was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome and was suffering from 300 grand mal seizures a week.

This is perhaps the writing on the wall when it comes to a full-scale medical marijuana legalization effort in the state of Florida with polls showing extremely strong support for the medical weed, a measure that will appear on this November's ballot.
