See my posts here, here, here, and here regarding the Florida Legislature’s efforts to pass laws to implement Amendment 2 (medical marijuana passed by Florida’s voters in November 2016) which failed in the last legislative session.
While we wait to see if the Florida Legislature will call a special session to get regulations passed to implement Amendment 2, now comes news that a Florida Administrative Judge has ruled in favor of two growers who who had previously sought licenses under the low-THC medical marijuana regulatory scheme. Those licenses have, obviously, gotten very valuable now that Amendment 2 has passed, since those are the growers who will be able to participate under Amendment 2 until litigation or further legislation permits additional licenses.
