We understand that medical marijuana is currently a controversial topic, and it feels strange to volunteer your name and email to be recorded in association with a cannabis-related event.
The reasons we ask for registration are: to get an idea of how many seats each session will need, to be able to cap each session at a certain number of attendees in order to comply with fire safety codes at each
We do not ask for an excess of personal information when reserving your seat, and your information will not be given or sold to any third party.
We’d love to hold MMAD conferences on a variety of days, but right now it’s about cost– in order to keep conferences free for patients, we work with a fairly small budget, and venues are typically much cheaper on weekdays. We’d rather offer multiple sessions throughout one weekday than rent a venue for one short session on a weekend at the same cost.
1) Make your voice heard by calling the Florida Office of Medical Marijuana Use at 850-245-4657 or send them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Call your elected officials, such as governors and senators, and impress upon them the importance of this issue — Florida could become a wonderful example of a functioning medical marijuana system if we can get it efficiently reformed.
3) Tell people around you about medical marijuana, and educate when you hear misinformation.
4) Keep up this enthusiasm! The amendment we all passed to come this far was called the Compassionate Care Act, and that’s exactly what we need– compassion to look after our communities, and give patients all over, the power to choose medical marijuana.
