(Sunshine State News) –Two Democrats in the Florida House — state Rep. Michael Grieco of Miami Beach and state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith of Orlando — introduced a proposal easing restrictions on recreational marijuana use in the Sunshine State.
“The bill would create a path to full access to cannabis in Florida and a structure for its cultivation, sale, and taxation,” Grieco’s office noted on Wednesday.
“The recreational use of cannabis is currently legal in 10 states, New Jersey soon to be the 11th, with those to be included in the 22 states that have decriminalized small amounts of marijuana. In 2018 we saw the first state (Vermont) legalize marijuana for adult use through the legislative process, while another 20 state legislatures considered similar bills.”
The two state representatives weighed in on why they had introduced the proposal.
