TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – Governor Ron DeSantis signed the “Medical Use of Marijuana” bill into law on Monday.

Additionally, Governor DeSantis filed a joint motion to dismiss People United for Medical Marijuana v. Department of Health and to vacate the lower court decision which had held the prior law to be unconstitutional.

In January, Governor DeSantis called on his colleagues in the Legislature to bring forward a legislative solution to medical marijuana to allow smoking as a method of consumption by qualified patients.

“Over 70 percent of Florida voters approved medical marijuana in 2016,” said Governor Ron DeSantis.

“I thank my colleagues in the Legislature for working with me to ensure the will of the voters is upheld. Now that we have honored our duty to find a legislative solution, I have honored my commitment and filed a joint motion to dismiss the state’s appeal and to vacate the lower court decision which had held the prior law to be unconstitutional.”
