Reciprocity is the act of allowing out-of-state medical marijuana patients to shop at Florida dispensaries while at the same time enabling Florida’s medical marijuana patients to get the medicine they need in some of the 30-plus states that offer medical marijuana.
Reciprocity is the most logical next step for Florida’s medical marijuana program.
There are two reasons why this is an idea whose time has come. First, reciprocity extends compassion to visitors in the Sunshine State and Florida residents traveling to other states. Second, it would bring millions of dollars of revenue into the state, not only putting millions in additional tax revenue into state coffers but also bolstering the state’s tourism industry.
