Florida Judge Rules Government Cannot Limit the Growth of Marijuana Facilities

“Tallahassee Circuit Judge Karen Gievers, she struck down the 2017 state law regulating medical marijuana, saying it conflicted with the state constitution.”

The Constitutional Amendment that was passed in November, 2016 details: 1) the actions the Department of Health is to take in setting up the registry for qualifying patients and certifying physicians, and 2) for registering the entities involved in growing and providing those patients with the medical marijuana needed for their treatment.

Last year, in a separate case, Circuit Judge Charles Dodson, in 2018 ruled “that the amendment did not contemplate a licensing scheme for providers that would be decided and controlled by state regulators, but rather “registrations” that would be freely granted.”

The legislature cannot limit access. Sounds like a freer market to me. Here.
