Thirty One Businesses have registered with the state as medical marijuana businesses. That might be putting the cart before the horse. The vote in Florida to approve medical marijuana isn't until November 4th.
14 of those businesses are in Palm Beach County. In all, more than a hundred businesses have registered with some form of marijuana in their name. And they're coming from all walks of life. A lawyer has registered as well as a personal trainer, a construction contractor and a retired insurance firm executive.
Some are looking at it as a good business opportunity while others have a more personal reason. The Sun Sentinel reports some have seen a family member or friend suffer and believe marijuana could've eased their pain.
