If you need medical marijuana, you better not be in a Florida nursing home or ALF


After his 88-year-old mother fell and broke her neck six years ago, Bill Crouse knew he needed to do something. For four months his mother was “off the planet” on opiates in a Plantation nursing home. She was depressed, anxious, constipated and “meaner than snot.” Crouse was desperate. He took his mother to see Dr . Michelle Weiner, a Miami pain management physician and medical marijuana expert.
By May 2018, Crouse’s mother’s opiates were entirely replaced by marijuana tinctures, which he drops under her tongue or mixes in with applesauce.
Until he moved his mother into a private assisted living facility last year, Crouse had to sneak his mother her three-times-daily doses when no one was around.
