Florida Supreme Court cancels medical marijuana hearing
Attorney General Pam Bondi announced last week that she would not launch a challenge to the constitutional amendment, so the Florida Supreme Court called off the scheduled hearing on the matter. Justices will still need to approve the ballot’s wording before the measure can move forward, however, as reported by North Escambia.

Manteca police find marijuana worth $8.4M in warehouse
Manteca police arrested a Stockton man after finding $8.4 million worth of marijuana in a commercial warehouse, officers said Thursday.
Investigators followed up Wednesday on information about a large marijuana grow at a warehouse at 1320 Dupont Court in Manteca.
Inside the building, officers discovered a large marijuana growing operation that housed 584 mature plants estimated to be worth $8.4 million, police said.
Detectives believe the grow had been in operation since July and was going to be harvested next week, intended for a Bay Area marijuana store.
The Next Internet? Marijuana Delivered as Easy as Pizza
One morning in September, I logged on to the website of HelloMD, a medical start-up that promises to connect patients with doctors instantly over the Internet. I filled out my personal details, explained my ailment — I often get heartburn — and entered in my credit card number to cover the $50 consultation fee.
Within 10 minutes, a pediatrician based near Washington who is licensed to practice medicine in my home state of California popped up on my screen. She appeared to be sitting in her home — there were a few teddy bears and ceramic figurines on a cabinet behind her — and she wore a red shirt, not a white coat.
The doctor asked about my medical history, current symptoms and familiarity with certain medicines. The interview lasted about three minutes, after which she announced what everyone who visits HelloMD expects to hear: According to her diagnosis, my heartburn made me a candidate for medical marijuana, which has been legal in California since 1996.
