Earlier today, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill repealing Floridaâ€™s ban on smokable medical marijuana. The bill, SB 182, allows medical patients to smoke medical marijuana legally.
DeSantis made the announcement on Monday, officially signing SB 182 â€œMedical Use of Marijuanaâ€ into law.
â€œOver 70 percent of Florida voters approved medical marijuana in 2016,â€ DeSantis said in a statement. â€œI thank my colleagues in the Legislature for working with me to ensure the will of the voters is upheld. Now that we have honored our duty to find a legislative solution, I have honored my commitment and filed a joint motion to dismiss the stateâ€™s appeal and to vacate the lower court decision which had held the prior law to be unconstitutional.â€
