What's Up in Florida?
Legal Status: Recreational cannabis is illegal. Florida voters legalized medical cannabis in 2016.
In The News: While the ballot initiative that legalized medical cannabis explicitly allowed patients to smoke cannabis, Gov. Rick Scott and the legislature defied voters by banning it after the fact (only edibles and oils are currently allowed). In May 2018, a circuit court judge ruled that the ban is unconstitutional, but it will remain in place until an appeals court issues a final ruling.
