Local patients, dispensaries ready for smokable medical marijuana

For Kathy Prueitt of Saint Petersburg, life without medical marijuana is literally a headache.

“It helps me considerably with my pain. I don’t know what I’d do without it,” she said. “I suffer severely from chronic migraines.”

Prueitt is one of the thousands of patients across Florida who are excited smokable medical marijuana could soon be legal. On Wednesday, the Florida House overwhelmingly approved a Senate bill, repealing a ban on smokable medical marijuana.
