growing marijuana in florida laws

Idaho: In 2015, the Idaho State Legislature passed a bill legalizing certain types of CBD oil that was later vetoed by Governor Butch Otter (R). In response, Otter issued an executive order allowing children with intractable epilepsy to use Epidiolex in certain circumstances. [6]

As of May 2021, 36 states and Washington, D.C., had passed laws legalizing or decriminalizing medical marijuana. Additionally, 10 states had legalized the use of cannabis oil, or cannabidiol (CBD)—one of the non-psychoactive ingredients found in marijuana—for medical purposes. [4] In one state—Idaho—medical marijuana was illegal, but the use of a specific brand of FDA-approved CDB, Epidiolex, was legal. [5] Based on 2019 population estimates, 67.5 percent of Americans lived in a jurisdiction with access to medical marijuana.

Background

(11) “Marijuana plant” means a plant, including, but not limited to, a seedling or cutting. To determine if a piece or part of a marijuana plant severed from the marijuana plant is itself a marijuana plant, the severed piece or part must have some readily observable evidence of root formation, such as root hairs.

On March 27, 2020, Gov. Kristi Noem (R) signed House Bill 1008 into law, which legalized industrial hemp and CBD oil in the state. [10]

The proposed constitutional amendment said those 21 and older could grow nine plants indoors or 18 per household, and they could not sell it. Dr. Heather Auld prescribes cannabis and said buying from dispensaries can be quite expensive.

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 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.

“We’re talking about possessing and growing a plant,” said Eli Joyce. “Adults have the right to deserve that option,” said Eli Joyce

“The focus needs to be getting these [petitions] in the hands of voters,” Joyce said. “We’re going to mail these out.”

“I can say I’ll probably have fewer patients but there are still medical patients that really need a lot of education,” Dr. Auld said.
