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 Representativesâ€™ 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 â€œSavor the Experienceâ€ of Haitian culture, art, music and food by participating in the Countyâ€™s 14th annual celebration of Haitian Heritage Cultural Month.
â€œHaitian Heritage Cultural Month is a wonderful opportunity for residents of every nationality and background to come and experience the richness of Haitian culture,â€ said Commissioner Monestime, the first Haitian-American elected to the County Commission. â€œI encourage everyone to take part in this celebration of all the contributions the Haitian community has made to Miami-Dade County and the world.â€
