TALLAHASSEE – Florida lawmakers Thursday took a major step toward repealing the state’s ban on smokable medical marijuana, signaling an early victory in the legislative session for Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The Florida Senate passed SB 182 by a 34-4 vote to remove the prohibition. The bill now heads to the House.
“Marijuana is now medicine in the state of Florida and how that medicine is administered should be between their doctor and that patient,” said Sen. Gary Farmer, D-Lighthouse Point.
