Challenge to Florida Legislatures’s Limitation on Medical Marijuana Use.
Despite the passage of a Florida Constitution Amendment by the people of the state of Florida in November 2016, the Legislature continues to attempt to artificially limit its access and availability. Current legislation bans the direct inhalation of the drug, opting for other forms that are far scarcer.
People United for Medical Marijuana continues to be a major activist for the complete legalization of medical marijuana. “People United” has challenged the current bill to make medical use of the drug more accessible and more directly available.
Attorney John Morgan’s Role.
Attorney John Morgan of Orlando, Florida, is leading the push to ensure that state legislation clearly authorizes the use of medical marijuana in any form. He states that he is fighting for the patients that desperately need the drug. He represents People United for Medical Marijuana, stating that they are trying to make sure medical marijuana is accessible for all who need it.
A law suit recently filed stated “by redefining the constitutionally defined term ‘medical use’ to exclude smoking, the Legislature substitutes its medical judgment for that of ‘a licensed Florida physician’ and is a direct conflict with the specifically articulated constitutional process.”
