Governor DeSantis to Sign Smokable Medical Marijuana Bill

Jordan Kirkland - March 14th, 2019

On Wednesday, the Florida House overwhelmingly passed legislation to lift the ban on smokable medical marijuana, with a vote of 101 in favor of the measure and only 11 against.

The vote comes one week after the Senate voted 34-4 to remove the ban on smokable cannabis.

The bill now heads to Gov. Ron DeSantis' desk to sign, just a day before the mandatory the deadline he imposed is set to pass.

Legislators passed a law in 2017 legalizing the use of medical marijuana -- by 71 percent of voters in 2016. The law, however, barred patients from access to smokable marijuana, restricting them to oils and baked goods.
