Governor Ron DeSantis signed SB 182 into law, repealing the ban on smokable medical marijuana. Commissioner Nicole “Nikki” Fried offers the following:
“Today is a landmark victory for patients across Florida and for our democracy. It’s a triumph owed to the relentless advocacy of Floridians who refused to be silenced. Our state must not disregard the voice of its people – when the people’s will is nullified by those with authority, liberty cannot survive.
Patients should be able to access medicine in the form their doctor determines best for them. Whether it’s smoking medical marijuana or other delivery mechanisms, treatment decisions should be made by physicians, not politicians.”
