FLORIDA: A trade association Wednesday challenged the Florida Department of Health‘s plan for carrying out a new medical-marijuana law, adding to two challenges filed earlier in the week.
The Florida Medical Cannabis Association is asking an administrative law judge to reject a department rule unveiled this month.
The earlier challenges were filed by nurseries Plants of Ruskin, Inc., and Costa Farms.
The cases stem from a law passed this spring that allows strains of marijuana low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD. Supporters say the substances can help children with severe forms of epilepsy and some people with other medical conditions.
