Florida House Speaker Jose Oliva has announced that he would like to pass legislation this year to limit the amount of THC in medical cannabis products in the state, according to a South Florida Sun-Sentinel report.

Although legislation to cap the amount of THC has not been introduced this legislative session, the House considered a proposal last year that would have capped the THC level in whole-flower products at 10%. The Senate ultimately rejected that measure.

Now, however, Oliva is making a THC cap a priority for the House, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. He told the news outlet that he would be willing to sponsor a bill to cap THC levels in all medical cannabis products, from flower to edibles.

Oliva has discussed the issue with Senate President Bill Galvano, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and Sen. Rob Bradley, who has played a key role in medical cannabis legislation in the past, has indicated that he is willing to consider a THC cap.
