Earlier today, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill repealing Florida’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 “Medical Use of Marijuana” into law.
“Over 70 percent of Florida voters approved medical marijuana in 2016,” DeSantis said in a statement. “I 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 state’s appeal and to vacate the lower court decision which had held the prior law to be unconstitutional.”
