Senator Gary Farmer filed SB 726, an effort to end the ban on smokable forms of medical marijuana. Currently, oils, edibles and other forms of medical marijuana are available. A lawsuit challenging the ban was filed in Leon County Circuit Court over the summer, but hasn’t been heard yet.
The bill, if passed, would then resolve the lawsuit without it being heard or tried, according to The Gainesville Sun. House Majority Leader Ray Rodrigues indicates that the House won’t agree to allowing smokable forms of medical marijuana.
Senator Farmer said, “Each and every legislator, including myself, swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the State of Florida. An overwhelming majority of voters ratified Amendment 2, and its intent could not be more clear: to allow for the use of medical marijuana, including smoking.”
It has not been announced whether the bill will be heard or considered yet.
