        Last year, attorney John Morgan sued the state of Florida, arguing that banning the smoking of dried cannabis flower for medical purposes is unconstitutional. A judge ruled in his favor to allow for flower sales in Florida. Directly afterward, then-Governor Rick Scott filed an appeal, which prevented flower sales from moving forward until the appeal was resolved in court. However, the new governor, Ron DeSantis, who took control on January 8, is expected to announce this afternoon that his administration has decided to drop his predecessor's appeal, which will allow for medical marijuana flower sales by licensed dispensaries in Florida. After legislation initially failed in 2014, Florida voters approved the Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative on November 8, 2016. Known as Amendment 2, the law authorizes the use of medical marijuana by Floridians with debilitating illnesses.     The law required a super-majority vote of at least 60% to pass, and 71% voted yes. However, lawmakers limited its scope by allowing only oils, sprays, tinctures, edibles and vaping. The vape pods are dispensed in tamper-resistant receptacles. Smoking cannabis was deliberately excluded as a valid form of medical marijuana consumption because lawmakers expressed concerns that it would pave a slippery slope to allowing recreational use. "'Inhalation is a medically effective and efficient way to deliver Tetrahydrocannabinol [THC], and other cannabinoids, to the bloodstream,' wrote Morgan and his lead lawyer, Jon Mills, a constitutional lawyer and former Democratic House speaker, on behalf of Florida for Care Inc., the non-profit formed to promote the initiative," the Miami Herald reported. There is a commonly held belief by conservatives that marijuana can be viewed as medicinal only when consumed similarly to other medical products such as tinctures, gel caps and topicals. Along that same line of reasoning, smokeable cannabis cannot or should not be considered a pharmaceutical-grade product. As reported by Mary Ellen Klas in the Miami Herald, "Orlando-based trial lawyer John Morgan, who spearheaded and financed the successful campaign to make medical access to cannabis a constitutional right, filed the lawsuit in Leon County Circuit Court, asking the court to declare the law implementing the 2016 constitutional amendment unenforceable. Morgan argues that Florida legislators violated voters’ intent when they prohibited smoking for the medical use of marijuana." In 2017, Florida attorney John Morgan sued the state of Florida for banning the smoking of medical marijuana, calling it unconstitutional. “By redefining the constitutionally defined term ‘medical use’ to exclude smoking, the Legislature substitutes its medical judgment for that of ‘a licensed Florida physician’ and is in direct conflict with the specifically articulated Constitutional process,” the lawsuit states, according to the Miami Herald.  In May 2018, Florida Judge Karen Gievers ruled in favor of Morgan, saying Floridians had a right to use the medical marijuana treatment recommended by their physicians, including smokable marijuana in private places. The same day of the ruling, the Florida Department of Health filed an appeal in federal court in Tallahassee, saying the verdict goes against the intent of the Florida Legislature, which called it a health risk. This appeal prohibited the smoking of flower ruling from moving forward until the suit settles, meaning that no marijuana flower can be sold medically in Florida until its resolution, according to Spectrum News 13. Today, multiple sources close to state regulators have said that the new government administration will be dropping the appeal and will allow for smoking medical marijuana. An announcement of this decision is expected at 2 p.m. Eastern today. The report will likely be met with resounding support from cannabis industry participants, as well as investors, who view Florida as one of the most influential medical markets in the United States. Patients in Florida will finally be allowed to consume cannabis in whatever format is expressly approved by their physician, including smoking marijuana in private places, as long as it is purchased in a legal, state-licensed dispensary.  Sources close to the regulators say that Florida is a highly coveted market, with its vertical integration and dense population. Therefore, cannabis flower from an investment perspective is set to expand while stocks from companies with holdings in Florida might predictably soar. Update: If DeSantis drops the appeal immediately, it will allow for the sale of cannabis flower. Immediate access to flower may confuse the marketplace because there are no laws written yet regarding how many buds or grams patients may possess and if other flower products –such as pre-rolled joints or blunts– will be permissible. In states such as California, a consumer can buy flower and pre-rolls as long as the joints are wrapped in paper which does not contain tobacco. Dispensaries cannot mix cannabis and tobacco paper, therefore selling pre-rolled blunts is still illegal. These are some of the concerns that DeSantis announced he is giving lawmakers time to establish before dropping the appeal. The Governor does not want to cause legislators to have to scramble to come up with these regulations after quantities of flower are already being sold. However, DeSantis made it clear that he will no longer allow the state to "drag its feet" on giving the people what they voted for –access to medical marijuana at the sole discretion of their physician. Sources close to the administration say that the governor will give lawmakers until around May of this year to establish laws around smoking flower, or he will drop the appeal himself.

      Just watched this wee video on the Tube and even his small plants are getting a daily watering/feed.His plants do look nice tbf.   Sure I`ve read @Golden Syrup to water again when your pot feels half as heavy after a saturating? Also read that you dont need to water again if your pots are still heavy?Just dont let them dry out alltogether.   I undertand a little more now about replacing the nutrients and runoff daily,the guy in the video is saying dont even let the top of your coco dry,he keeps his wet all the time by daily waterings!   Confused even more now.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnxbj8o_PwQ   Tenchie.

        A Cambridge university graduate was hit and killed outside his home by a speeding driver who was high on cannabis, the Old Bailey heard.  Kevin Chang, 24, was run over in Walworth last April by Malachi Wheatle, who was driving at 70mph along the 30mph road.  Wheatle, also 24, stopped at the scene of the crash in Kennington Park Road and later tested positive for cannabis.   He admitted taking drugs before getting behind the wheel and said he cannot remember how fast he was travelling.    Malachi Wheatle was driving at 70mph (central news) Mr Chang, who had graduated with a master’s in engineering from Churchill College, Cambridge, in 2016, suffered devastating injuries in the 4.30am collision and was declared dead at the scene.  Friends and colleagues raised £15,000 after his death to support Mr Chang’s family, including a sister studying in London and his parents who live in Taiwan.  Wheatle appeared in the dock yesterday to plead guilty to causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drugs.  The court heard he had a previous conviction for possessing drugs from 2014.  Wheatle denied the more serious charge of causing death by dangerous driving, and prosecutor Benjamin Temple said the guilty pleas entered would be accepted “after taking in the views of Mr Chang’s family”.  Judge Lynn Tayton QC freed Wheatle on bail until sentencing on February 22, but warned that he faces a jail term at the next hearing.  In the aftermath of Mr Chang’s death, Churchill College said it was “deeply saddened” and described the former student as a “lively, funny and loyal character who made many close friends”.  Rob Trimble, chief executive of the Bromley by Bow Centre, a charity where Mr Chang had worked after leaving university, said in a tribute that colleagues remember “a passionate, patient and profoundly present young man, someone ready to help on the front line, working with clients who face the toughest of challenges in life.”  On the JustGiving page, Mr Chang’s friends wrote: “In this time of immeasurable loss, we are all grieving our unique, genius, and hilarious friend who truly was one of a kind.”
