TALLAHASSEE — In the two years since the Florida Legislature passed a law allowing highly restricted use of medical marijuana to help people with seizures, the measure remains in regulatory limbo with more questions than answers.
The low-potency marijuana allowed under the Compassionate Cannabis Act of 2014 is not getting to patients and that has key supporters in the Legislature frustrated.
“We passed a law to respond to concerns from suffering families and we look up here a couple years later and we still do not have the relief promised to those families,” Sen. Rob Bradley said during a recent hearing of the Regulated Industries Committee. “I find that particularly frustrating and I am sorry to those families that we are not there yet.”
