The Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act will come before Florida legislators in 2013 in honor of a wheelchair Parrish woman who has fought for the past 16 years for the legalization of medical cannabis in Florida.

Jordan’s husband, Robert, told the Herald that his Parrish home in Beck Estates on 98th Avenue in Parrish was raided shortly after 2 p.m. Monday by deputies and detectives with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office drug intervention unit who wore ski masks.
