Florida is set to impose limits on the level of THC allowed in adult-use cannabis, despite it not yet being legalized.
As Business of Cannabis reported in January, reports emerged that Florida could legalize adult-use cannabis in 2024, as its Governor Ron DeSantis suggested it would be on the ballot in November.
According to reports from Marijuana Moment, days before dropping out of the race to become U.S. president, DeSantis said he believed the state Supreme Court would approve the measure, allowing voters to decide.
Yesterday (February 06), Florida’s GOP Senate approved preemptive legislation which would cap THC levels in smokeable products to 30%, with concentrates and vaporizers capped at 60%. Edibles would also be capped at 200mg per package and 10mg per serving.
The controversial proposals, put forward as part of SPB 7050, would make Florida the third US state, alongside Vermont and Connecticut, to impose THC limits if passed into law.
