Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.

In 2023, ASA recommends that legislators make improvements, particularly when it comes to patients rights. These include, addressing discriminatory roadside sobriety testing, and provisions that protect medical cannabis patients from discrimination in their employment; something that must be corrected immediately. While the current law prohibits landlords from discriminating against someone based on their status as a medical cannabis patient, landlords are permitted to prohibit specific behaviors within the lease, which harms patients.

ASA also recommends that Florida do away with requiring patients to register every 7 months; administrative costs of running the medical cannabis program should not fall on the shoulders of patients, and patients should not be required to pay a fee just to have access to a treatment option.
