Nikki Fried praises passage of bill to allow smokable medical Marijuana

Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried says “It’s about damn time” that Florida lawmakers finally passed a bill to allow smokable medical marijuana. Commissioner Fried, who is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the Charlotte Co. Democrats’ Blue Gala next month, praised the passage in a Tweet.

The bill passed on a 101-11 vote on Wednesday and is the first bill to go to the governor’s desk during the 60-day legislative session that began last week.
