Under a new bill passed by a key Florida House of Representatives panel on Tuesday, patients may soon be allowed to smoke medical cannabis in the form of pre-rolled cigarettes with filters.
Just after being elected, new Governor Ron DeSantis had said that he would withdraw the lawsuit to outlaw smoking medicinal cannabis and instead work towards legalising smoking cannabis flowers. He gave the state lawmakers until mid-March to consider the issue and take an action.
Presently, the only form of medicinal cannabis products available to patients are oils and concentrates, which are costly and are also not so effective than compared to flowers or edibles.
Flower marijuana is a lot more affordable as the patients can utilize the buds and create their own cannabis products.
The various Senate and House measures as well as the alterations approved by the key panel on Tuesday place lawmakers in a spot to clear a legislation which would probably be acceptable to Governor DeSantis by his given deadline.
Meanwhile, stripping off the ban on smoking medicinal cannabis isn’t the only change which we’ll get to see in the state’s cannabis industry. Governor DeSantis has also proposed that he would like to bring changes to the rules which govern how the industry operates.
