The new Florida Governor, Ron De Santis, has made some bold statements regarding medical marijuana in Florida, including the legality of smoking medical marijuana and Florida’s vertical license structure with limited licensees.    See my post at Fox’s In the Weeds.

The State of Florida has missed the deadline to issue additional licenses for medical marijuana treatment centers (the entities that grow, distribute and sell medical marijuana).  Please see my post, over on Fox’s In the Weeds, for additional details.

Please see my update, over on Fox’s In the Weeds, on the Florida Legislature’s success in passing a medical marijuana bill during the recent special session.  Now we wait on Governor Rick Scott to sign the bill, which he is expected to do.

Once Gov. Scott signs the bill into law, Florida Statute s. 381.986 (Compassionate use of low-THC and medical cannabis law) will be amended to state the following:

This section does not limit the ability of an employer to establish, continue, or enforce a drug-free workplace program or policy.  This section does not require an employer to accommodate the medical use of marijuana in any workplace or any employee working while under the influence of marijuana.  This section does not create a cause of action against an employer for wrongful discharge or discrimination. Marijuana, as defined in this section, is not reimbursable under chapter 440.

What that means is that employers will have some protections to maintain drug free workplaces and to discipline or terminate employees under the influence of medical marijuana.  But with all new laws, litigation establishing rights of employers and employees is likely.
