As of Friday, 100,576 Florida patients had registered with the office, an increase of more than 2,500 in the past week, the Orlando Weekly reported.
So far, only 75,208 of the registered patients have been issued ID cards allowing them to purchase medical marijuana. About 3,000 others have their application processed for the final issuances of their cards.
In Florida, there are 1,314 doctors, who have qualified to order marijuana treatment for patients.
In a related story, one of the key reasons behind the Canada-based U.S. Liberty Health Sciences Inc. (CSE: LHS) (OTCQX: LHSIF) reporting a 253 percent increase in its monthly revenue since the start of 2018 is the rise of demand by medical marijuana patients in Florida.
