Florida Department of Health lawyers asked an appeals court to overturn a circuit judge’s ruling they say “injected confusion and uncertainty” into licensing of medical marijuana businesses in the state.

The case centers on a 2017 law, passed during a special legislative session, that regulates the state’s MMJ industry.
