Backers of a recreational-marijuana legalization effort announced Monday their proposal will not be on Florida’s 2020 ballot -- though a separate legalization drive continues.

In 6 Months, About 57 Tons Of Smokable Medical Marijuana Was Ordered For Florida Patients

Nov 20, 2019

More than 1.82 million ounces of smokable medical marijuana were ordered for 128,040 patients over a six-month period, a new state report shows.

That translates to 113,922 pounds, or 57 tons, of flower marijuana.

Public schools across Florida must have a policy in place by the end of the year allowing students to use medical marijuana on campus, or they will risk losing some state funding. 

Legislation filed this week by Jacksonville City Councilman Garrett Dennis to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana is getting pushback from top city officials.
