growing weed indoors in florida

The proposed ballot summary is as follows: [2]

Ballot title

After the 2019 changes, Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg (R) issued a statement, wherein he argued all forms of CBD oil, apart from Epidiolex, were illegal under state law. [9] Several state’s attorneys expressed disagreement with the Attorney General’s statements. Aaron McGown and Tom Wollman, state’s attorneys for Minnehaha and Lincoln counties, respectively, issued a joint statement where they said the discrepancy left legality open to differing interpretations. Mark Vargo, the Pennington County state’s attorney, said his office would not prosecute CBD cases based on his interpretation of the state law. [8]

Medical marijuana in the United States

The measure would amend Amendment 2 (2016), which legalized medical marijuana in Florida, to redefine “medical use” under the measure to include growing up to nine marijuana plants. The measure would also add a definition for “marijuana plant.” [1]

Cole Peacock owns Seed and Bean Coffee Shop in downtown Fort Myers and while he supports recreational use believes it may still be too early for Florida to approve it.

The group believes it is a constitutional right for Floridians to have access to cannabis whether they are medical patients or not.

Eli Joyce with the grassroots group Regulate Florida is pushing to get recreational use on the 2022 ballot.

She admits legalizing marijuana recreationally could cost her some patients; she still supports the idea.

The constitutional amendment being proposed would allow those 21 and older to grow their own marijuana. But it could only be grown inside a locked room.

In 2016, 70 percent of voters approved a constitutional use of medical marijuana. Polls now show more than half of voters support recreational use, however, it would take 60 percent of voters to get the measure passed.

First, though, activists need to get 225,000 signatures just to get the courts to review it to decide if it can even be placed on the ballot.
