MMJ advocate sues Florida to get smokable cannabis into program

A cannabis advocate who was instrumental in Florida’s passage of a medical marijuana law filed suit against the state to get smokable MJ included in the program.

Attorney John Morgan argued in the lawsuit filed Thursday that smoking marijuana is the best way to administer it to some patients.

Smokable medical marijuana would entice patients to join the program and subsequently increase revenue for the state’s MMJ industry.

Morgan led the ballot effort that put MMJ in the state constitution with 71% voter approval. He said the language in the constitution said marijuana can’t be smoked in public, which implies it should be allowed in private.

But the law signed last month by Florida’s Republican governor bans smokable forms of marijuana. Lawmakers who supported the ban argued smoking marijuana isn’t healthy. Vaping, however, is allowed.
