Medicinal marijuana is legal in Florida, but dispensaries are not open for business, yet.For whatever reason, I keep walking through more and more plumes of burnt cannibis nowadays.
Do people think that recreational pot smoking is legal, and are lighting up more?
In Miami Beach, a place where smoking pot is the norm, local commissioners voted in favor of extending a moratorium on opening up medical post dispensaries.
The 4-3 vote in favor of the moratorium, which was opposed by Miami Beach Mayor and potential gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine, would extend the ban until May 17 of this year.
Florida for Care, the group that championed the ’Yes on 2’ initiative to legalized medical marijuana in Florida, chimed in on the vote,“[Cities] are going to have to operate under the laws of Tallahassee, and Tallahassee hasn’t made them yet…“It’s really the only logical thing to do, unless they’re just itching to get a dispensary to open up in the neighborhood.”.-Ben Pollara, Florida for Care (Miami Herald)
