David Berger, a Tampa pediatrician who runs Family Medical Cannabis Clinic, said he’s concerned the state will allow the Florida Board of Medicine to determine who is eligible for treatment.
“I ask the Florida voters: Did you intend for the doctors and the patients to be the ones to decide?” Berger said to the audience members behind him. “Yes!”
“The Florida voters have spoken,” Berger said. “I implore the Department of Health to not put this in the hands of the Board of Medicine and to trust the patient-doctor relationship.”
