Florida senator files major medical-marijuana bill on who can get supply

A proposed 28-page bill sponsored by St. Petersburg Sen. Jeff Brandes, the most far-reaching of its kind by a top legislative leader, seeks to regulate the cultivation, distribution and use of medical marijuana in Florida. Qualified patients could receive as much as a 30-day supply of marijuana from a licensed, regulated facility as long as they were properly examined by a physician, who would have to write a prescription-like recommendation for the drug.
