Legal cannabis has been legal in Florida since 2009.
But now the US is trying to legalise medicinal cannabis.
The state of Florida is hoping to start legalising medicinal cannabis next month.
It is the first state in the US to do so.
And the first legal medicinal cannabis producer in Florida.
The Sunshine State has the largest cannabis growing industry in the country.
But that’s just a part of what is happening here.
It’s the first time a state has legalised medicinal cannabis and that’s a big deal.
“If we don’t get this right, it will create a huge backlash, which is the biggest fear for patients and doctors,” said Dr Richard Johnson, the head of the Florida Department of Health.
Dr Johnson and his team are working to put medicinal cannabis in a legal framework.
“I think we’re moving in the right direction,” he said.
Florida’s medical cannabis laws are very different to those in New York and Colorado.
That’s partly because medicinal cannabis is federally illegal and that is one of the reasons that New York, Colorado and other states have had to find ways to regulate the medical cannabis industry.
But it’s also because Florida has been a pioneer in medicinal cannabis research.
The Department of Agriculture has been working to develop an edible version of the drug.
It started off as a pilot project in the early 2000s and is now being made a full-fledged product.
The FDA has also approved its use in clinical trials.
“It’s going to be really important for patients to be able to consume it in the most safe and legal way possible, and we’re trying to do that with an edible,” Dr Johnson said.
He said that’s the goal.
The edible is being produced by Florida’s Gently Medical, which also produces the medicinal cannabis oil that is the main ingredient in the plant.
Gently is part of a company called Florida Green, which produces a number of edible products, including cannabis butter.
The company’s CEO, Matt Wigglesworth, said the company had a long history of helping the cannabis industry grow.
He explained that Gently medical had helped to create the Florida Growers Association and that it was the first and only state to establish a Cannabis Control Board.
“They’ve been working on this product for about five years,” he told the ABC.
“We’ve had some major breakthroughs in this space, including the legalization of medical cannabis, so they’ve got a long and proud history.”
Gently was founded in 1999 by the now retired US Senator Patrick Murphy, and it was named the first medical cannabis manufacturer in Florida in 2010.
The first edible product in Florida was a tincture called The Purple Tree.
It was created in partnership with Florida State University.
Gately Medical is now working to create an edible product that is legal to purchase and consume.
And Gately has partnered with the Florida Green business to develop a medical cannabis tinctures.
Mr Wigglsworth said that, for Gately, it was a dream to work with a company that had a big history of doing medicinal cannabis studies.
He believes Florida’s legal medicinal marijuana will help the industry grow in the Sunshine State.
“There’s so much opportunity to expand, to help grow this industry, so I think it’s a really good opportunity for us to take advantage of that,” he explained.
The legal medicinal industry has been growing in Florida for the past two decades.
But in the past decade, Florida has become a pioneer for medical cannabis research and is poised to be the first major US state to legalises medicinal cannabis this month.
Dr Wiggelsworth said Florida’s medicinal cannabis industry is going to get a boost from its new federal regulations.
“The federal government is going into this to protect patients and their families,” he added.
He also believes Florida is poised for a booming industry in medicinal marijuana.
“Florida has a huge opportunity here to be a pioneer,” he concluded.
The ABC contacted Gately and Gately’s Florida Green subsidiary, but they declined to comment.
