Recreational marijuana isn’t legal in Florida
The website yourdailyideas, in a story dated from Orlando, Florida, reported lawmakers had agreed on legalization to “jump-start the economy.”
First, Florida’s Legislature and governor are based in the capital, Tallahassee. And lawmakers did not act on any recreational marijuana bills, said Karol Molinares, deputy communications director for the Florida House of Representatives’ Democratic Office.
Seventy-one percent of Florida voters in 2016 approved a constitutional amendment for the legalization of medical marijuana. Lawmakers produced a bill in the next session to implement rules and regulations. However, Molinares said lawmakers couldn’t agree on the number of retail locations that would be allowed to open. The Department of Health has been tasked with drawing up and implementing new rules.
