Florida Gov. Calls To End A Ban On Smoking Medical Marijuana

Florida's new governor  Ron DeSantis wants to end a ban on smokable medical marijuana.  DeSantis announced  Thursday that he's asking state legislators to repeal the part of Florida's medical marijuana law that prohibits smokable versions of the cannabis plant.  Back in 2016, Florida residents voted to approve medical marijuana, but it was limited by lawmakers to exclude the smokable variety.  A lawsuit was filed last year, claiming the exclusion was unconstitutional, and a judge agreed.

Then, former  Gov.

Rick Scott  appealed that decision, which ultimately put a stop to the sale of cannabis smoking products for medical use.  DeSantis said he's giving  state lawmakers  until March to act, or he'll drop the appeal himself.  Some  state legislators  have already expressed that they'll work with the governor on bringing that legislation forward.
