Is Cannabis Legal in Florida?
Cannabis in Florida is only legal for medical purposes.
Date of Legalization
In 2014, the Florida Legislature passed the Compassionate Use Act legalizing medical marijuana. The Governor of Florida signed an update to the state’s medical marijuana laws on June 23, 2017, in the form of Senate Bill .8-A, Medical Use of Marijuana. This bill replaced large portions of the existing Compassionate Use Act and was primarily codified within Florida Statutes Section 381.986. Department regulations governing Medical Marjiuana Treatment Centers (MMTC) sit within Florida Administrative Code Sec. 64-4.001 to Sec. 64-4.210. There is currently no formalized social equity program.
