Agriculture Commissioner, and Republican candidate for governor, Adam Putnam is adding his voice to the chorus calling for a medical marijuana special session.
“I think that it’s important for the elected officials to have done their job during the regular session,” Putnam says. “Since they didn’t I think that a special session is in order because I think that for a constitutional amendment’s implementation, it’s important for the elected officials to do it not the bureaucrats at the Department of Health.”
Putnam also took shots at a sweeping educational spending measure lawmakers passed at the eleventh hour of this year’s session. The governor—or House and Senate leaders together—can call members back the capital.
So far they haven’t.
