Miami, FL – February 21, 2017 – An overwhelming 71% of Florida voters approved Amendment 2 on November 8, 2016, making medical marijuana legal in the state as of January 3, 2017. Yet, the fight still continues. With the state house and senate set to convene and create and or modify existing rules, there are still the issues of access and free market availability that need to be addressed. Add to that the specter of a newly-confirmed, ultra-conservative U.S. Attorney General, and one can see the path to medicinal cannabis relief is still hazy.
Enter the 19th Annual Medical Marijuana Benefit Concert hosted by Ploppy Palace Productions, NORML of Florida and Modern Galaxy TV, to be held at The Wynwood Yard (56 NW 29th Street, Miami, FL 33127) on SATURDAY, March 18, 2017.
