Check out the video above to learn more about the free market medical marijuana bill filed by a Republican Florida Senator which would allow more than seven licensees the right to cultivate and sell medicinal marijuana.
Backed by basic economic principles of supply and demand, this bill is based on the idea that more participants in the medical marijuana market will push down prices.
With only seven approved cultivators, there is a virtual cannabis "cartel" in Florida that's "ripe for abuse." The abused end up being people like cancer patients and those with epilepsy and other serious conditions. There shouldn't be a system in place to make their treatment any more expensive than it already is.
