Legislation to Legalize Recreational Cannabis Filed in Florida

Florida Stateflorida Senator Dwight Bullard filed Senate Bill 1176 this week, a proposal to legalize the possession, private cultivation and state-licensed distribution of recreational cannabis for those 21 and older.

Senate Bill 1176 would allow those 21 and older to possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis, and to cultivate up to six cannabis plants. Cannabis retail outlets would also be allowed, with the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco being renamed the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, and put in charge of regulations for the cannabis production and distribution centers.

      Scott isn’t for CBD either…nobody gets any he just has it on paper..basically. He must think he’s God deciding who’s worthy of a simple plant to help them.

      Governments must stop pretending Cannabis/marijuana is not just food like many many plants that can have medicinal properties….
