Medical Marijuana

Floridians who are eligible to receive medical marijuana will still have to wait a long time to access smokable products if a judge lifts a stay.

The man who led the efforts to allow the use of medical marijuana in Florida two years ago implored Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday to drop the state's opposition to letting patients smoke it.

Florida's ban that prevents medical marijuana patients from smoking their cannabis has gone up in smoke.

State Urges Supreme Court To Stay Out Of Pot Case

May 21, 2018

Lawyers for the state asked the Florida Supreme Court to stay out of a legal battle, at least for now, over whether a lung-cancer patient can grow his own marijuana.

Tampa strip-club owner Joe Redner this week asked the high court to step in while the dispute is under appeal.

A Tallahassee judge in April ruled that Redner should be able to grow his own medical marijuana for “juicing.”

Redner and his lawyers maintain that juicing is the best way to prevent his lung cancer, now in remission, from recurring.

A Florida judge will soon decide if patients approved to use medical marijuana will be allowed to smoke it.
