Gaetz Asking Governor To Declare Emergency Order On Medical Marijuana – Local – Northwest Florida Daily News

Rick Scott to declare a state emergency that would fast track delivery of legal, non-euphoric marijuana to those who need it. I will not rest until vulnerable people are able to reasonably and responsibly apply for access to cannabis for medicinal purposes, he said. Before Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, can petition the governor though, the State Department of Health is going to have to come up with some rules regulating the processes through which the marijuana, a non-euphoric CBD strain, is brought to market. Rules finalized last August were overturned by an administrative law judge in November, delaying the Jan. 1 rollout of legal marijuana in Florida. I feel the government has failed vulnerable people by not meeting the Jan. 1 deadline, Gaetz said.
