United for Care, the main organization advocating for the approval of Florida Amendment 2 allowing for the medical use of marijuana in the state, expressed its approval of the House of Representatives’ passage of a bill that, if signed by Governor Rick Scott, would legalize a strain of marijuana that has proven effective at reducing convulsions in patients suffering from intractable epilepsy.  

The strain is high in a non-euphoric compound called Cannabidiol, or CBD, and is low in THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana.

Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jean Monestime, District 2, is inviting the community to “Savor the Experience” of Haitian culture, art, music and food by participating in the County’s 14th annual celebration of Haitian Heritage Cultural Month.

“Haitian Heritage Cultural Month is a wonderful opportunity for residents of every nationality and background to come and experience the richness of Haitian culture,” said Commissioner Monestime, the first Haitian-American elected to the County Commission. “I encourage everyone to take part in this celebration of all the contributions the Haitian community has made to Miami-Dade County and the world.”
