Cities Face ‘All Or Nothing’ Choices On Medical Marijuana

Aug 18, 2017

Florida cities and counties are in a dilemma about pot.

State lawmakers approved regulations in June that left city and county officials with a Hobson's choice about the sale of medical marijuana in their communities.

The Florida Department of Health has chosen five new marijuana growers in the last few weeks.

The Tampa City Council Thursday took the first of two votes on a proposed ordinance regulating the sale of medical marijuana inside city limits.

Florida’s Office of Medical Marijuana has issued two new cannabis licenses under the terms of a measure passed in this June’s special session.  Jim Eaton is an attorney with one of the new licensees, 3 Boys Farm.

Even after Florida’s medical marijuana bill became law, some communities are still deciding on the language of their own ordinances.
