Sunshine State

Where Weed Grows in the Sunshine State

The Miami Herald reported on May 1, 2014, that Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) will sign the low-THC “Charlotte’s Web” medical marijuana bill (SB 1030) that the Florida House passed in a landslide vote of 111-7. CBS Miami reports some who might have voted against the bill felt “their hearts were swayed by the stories of parents seeking to help children with severe epilepsy.” Even though the Senate also passed the Bill, the House made some changes that will require the Senate to vote again before the bill goes to Gov. Rick Scott.
