Medical Marijuana was approved in Florida by an amendment to the State’s Constitution in 2016. The product can be consumed every way except by smoking the plant itself. That wasn’t the intent of the law, but this is how it has been interpreted, until today, when the law was found to be unconstitutional.
Voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2016 allowing the use of medical marijuana. The only mention of smoking in the amendment’s language and in an intent document during the 2016 campaign was that the Legislature and local governments could restrict it in public places.
The next stop will be the state’s 1st District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee.
No reason it should not pass muster all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. Gov. Scott should end his opposition to private use.
