Florida approves medical marijuana law

TALLAHASSEE, May 28, 2015

Florida’s medical marijuana law cleared a major legal hurdle Wednesday thanks to a state judge’s ruling. Legislators voted 20 to 14 to legalize the strain of low-potency marijuana known as Charlotte’s Web.

State lawmakers approved the law in 2014. But legal challenges over rules drawn up by the state department of health delayed putting it into effect.

After Wednesday’s ruling, Charlotte’s Web should be available to treat epilepsy in children and patients with advanced cancer by the end of the year. The judge’s ruling also means the state can begin licensing growers possibly as early as this summer.

Businesses, websites and individuals still make regular references to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). Please note that this agency no longer exists!

INS was dismantled on March 1, 2003, and most of its functions were transferred from the Department of Justice to three components within the newly formed Department of Homeland Security.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
This is the component that grants immigration benefits.

The other two components are U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

All official correspondence regarding your immigration case will come from USCIS.
The official website is uscis.gov

Legal Terms


In common law legal systems, a trust is an arrangement whereby money or property is managed by one person (or persons, or organizations) for the benefit of another but is owned by the 'Trust'. A trust is created by a settlor, who entrusts some or all of his or her property to people of his choice (the trustees). The trustees are the legal owners of the trust property (or trust corpus), but they are obliged to hold the property for the benefit of one or more individuals or organizations (the beneficiary, a.k.a. cestui que use or cestui que trust), usually specified by the settlor. The trustees owe a fiduciary duty to the beneficiaries, who are the "beneficial" owners of the trust property.

The trust is governed by the terms of the trust document, which is usually written and in deed form. It is also governed by local law.

In the United States, the settlor is also called the trustor, grantor, donor, or creator.
