West Palm Beach Cannabis Lawyer

While Florida’s medical marijuana business appears to be booming by many metrics, there have been repeated delays and hiccups in the roll out of Florida’s program.  See my earlier post for details.

Now, almost two years after Florida’s program got underway, the director of Florida’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use, Christian Bax, has abruptly resigned.  As I’ve previously noted, Florida’s program has been plagued by an extremely limited number of medical marijuana licenses and litigation issues related to smoking, patient growing, and citrus industry and other “carve-out” licenses.

Mr. Bax came to his job with little experience in general and minimal medical marijuana experience as reported by the Tallahassee Democrat back in 2017.  The important job heading up Florida’s medical marijuana program was also not publicly advertised.

Courtney Coppola will serve as interim director of the Office of Medical Marijuana Use upon Bax’s resignation which is effective August 10, 2018.

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.
