Mar 13, 2019

Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, following the Florida House’s passage of SB 182 to repeal the ban on smokable medical marijuana, Commissioner Nicole “Nikki” Fried offers the following:

“Today’s action to finally allow smokable medical marijuana brings four words to the lips of people across our state: it’s about damn time. I’m thankful for the House and Senate’s work to fix this situation and look forward to the Governor signing this much-needed legislation into law. It’s long past due that the State of Florida honored the will of the people and allowed doctors to determine their patient’s course of treatment.”
