Changes Blooming In Senate Pot Plan

FLORIDA:  The leader of the Senate’s move to jump-start Florida’s medical marijuana industry has agreed to increase the level of euphoria-inducing THC in the limited types of pot allowed under a nearly year-old law.

Senate Regulated Industries Chairman Rob Bradley also has signed off on a change to make room for nurseries that don’t meet current criteria in the law, which restricts “dispensing organizations” to growers who have been in business in Florida for at least 30 years and grow a minimum of 400,000 plants. None of the state’s black farmers would be eligible under the current law.
