Medical Marijuana Compromise Met

After months of debate, state lawmakers have finally reached a compromise to regulate medical marijuana.

On Wednesday, legislators unveiled HB 5A, a proposal to implement Amendment 2. State Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, introduced the measure Wednesday afternoon. By Wednesday evening, the House and Human Services Committee had approved the measure.

John Morgan says he will sue because he believes people should be able to smoke it!
