TALLAHASSEE, Fla. | Judge to decide Florida ban on smokable medical marijuana
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A Florida judge will soon decide if patients approved to use medical marijuana will be allowed to smoke it.
Leon County circuit court Judge Karen Gievers heard testimony Wednesday from two women with terminal illnesses challenging the state’s ban on smoking cannabis.
Voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2016 allowing the use of medical marijuana. The only mention of smoking in the amendment’s language and in an intent document during the 2016 campaign was that the Legislature and local governments could restrict it in public places.
