WHERE DOES FLORIDA'S GOVERNOR STAND ON CANNABIS LEGALIZATION?

Gov. Ron DeSantis - R

Show More Info

  • Signed a bill that allows medical cannabis patients to use smokeable cannabis. (2019)
  • Ordered the State of Florida to end the previous governor’s appeal of a court ruling that determined the state’s ban on smokeable medical cannabis was unconstitutional. (2019)
  • Declared his opposition the legalization of recreational cannabis in Florida. (2018)
  • Quote: “I am going to implement the will of the voters. They passed medical marijuana overwhelmingly, and my view is is we have a process in Florida when that happens, then we shouldn’t play games with it. We should just simply implement it. Now I’m not somebody that thinks having recreational marijuana for young people is good. I think that will make it more difficult for people to succeed. And I think parents right now—it’s very difficult to raise children in the modern technological environment, you’ve got so many different distractions, to throw marijuana into it and make it more prevalent, I think would make it harder for parents. But on the medical side, we’ve got to respect the will of the voters.” (2018)
  • Voted against allowing VA doctors to recommend medical cannabis for veterans in states where it is legal. (2016)
  • Voted in favor of preventing the Justice Department from prosecuting medical cannabis patients and providers in states where it is legal. (2015)
