The Florida Department of Health has chosen not to appeal a court ruling invalidating the agency’s rules for low-THC marijuana. The deadline was Monday. Lobbyist Ron Watson says he’s optimistic for progress at the next meeting.
“We basically look like we’re starting over again,” Watson says, “but I think with better guidance especially from what the judge put in his ruling.”
The Legislature passed a law allowing low-THC marijuana in certain circumstances earlier this year, and the next rules workshop will be in Orlando, December 30.
