Florida’s health officials released their proposed rules for the state’s medical marijuana program on Friday. The Department of Health (DOH) picked up with the framework of the rules where the legislative process left off. On June 9, the State Legislature passed a bill during a special legislative session, which barely squeezed in medical marijuana.
The DOH is to give a 15-day notice before it adopts new rules, according to WFLA 8 News. The public has three days to comment on proposed rules. Rules for the program have to be in place by July 3. The rules are to take effect by October.
According to the DOH, they are committed to working with the public to create a patient-centric medical marijuana program.
