Medical Marijuana

Provisions in the medical marijuana legislation approved during last week’s special session are raising eyebrows.  The bill contains language seemingly written to favor specific companies.

Legislation to enact Florida's medical marijuana constitutional amendment is headed to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott.

The Senate and House approved the bill during Friday's final day of the special session. The House passed it 108-9 before the Senate voted 29-6.

Both chambers reached agreement on Wednesday that there would be a cap of 25 dispensaries per medical marijuana treatment center and that there wouldn't be a sales tax. The bill still bans smoking despite amendment supporters saying it is written into the language.

House and Senate lawmakers are taking another crack at implementing last year’s medical marijuana amendment.

Florida’s nascent medical marijuana industry is encouraging state lawmakers to draft a measure implementing amendment two.  If they refuse, the Department of Health will take the lead.
