Florida State Bill (SB 1562) Filed Allowing For Recreational Marijuana Use

Florida Senate Marijuana Bill

In the latest twist in a debate about legalizing marijuana in Florida, Sen. Dwight Bullard, D-Miami, filed a proposal Friday that would allow the recreational use of marijuana. The bill (SB 1562) likely has little chance of passing the Republican-dominated Legislature.

But it calls for allowing people who are 21 or older to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and also would allow them to cultivate up to six marijuana plants. The proposal also would create a regulatory structure that deals with issues such as the sale and taxation of marijuana.

The proposal comes as Florida voters prepare to cast ballots in November on legalizing medical marijuana. Also, lawmakers are considering proposals to legalize a marijuana extract that can help some children who have a form of epilepsy and suffer from severe seizures.

    It is a shame to know that many republicans are that ignorant in our capitol or are they just that corrupt and won’t do their job to meet the citizens demands.I would guess both when it’s been proven to help the human body with many good properties and evidence is overwhelming compared to so many other drug approvals with less evidence from big pharma. Why is it not illegal for our officials in office to have investments in drug products,test kits and prisons because that alone is a conflict of interest between citizens and government officials! Also the law on marijuana is so racist and illegal how it was passed while no acknowledgement from Legislature officials! Why let this prohibition continue one more day is criminal to cause so much damage on people. What an outrage we don’t have them removed from office!
