In Cruisin' For A Bruce-in, we ride along with Florida Attorney Bruce Denson as he gives brief explanations on Florida Law and what to do in common legal situations.
Alright: It's 2020 and let me tell you something that you may not agree with, you may not believe, but it's still the law in Florida that marijuana is illegal. So, if you've got a bunch of it - you're gonna get a felony charge. If you're selling it - you're certainly gonna get a felony charge. If you're driving under the influence of it - you're going to be accused of DUI. If you're giving it away, you could still get in trouble. If you have a small personal use amount, there may be some situations where the police will not arrest you, however, in Florida, the law still is that marijuana is illegal. So, don't sell it, don't drive under the influence of it, and certainly follow the law, and if you need a prescription go get a prescription because that may help some of your situations but marijuana is illegal.
While access to medical marijuana was legalized in 2016 with the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act, marijuana is still illegal in the state of Florida. If you have not been diagnosed by a certified physician with a qualifying condition and added to the Medical Marijuana Use Registry, possession and use of Marijuana, including synthetic marijuana, is still illegal. So, until further legislation passes allowing marijuana for recreational use, it’s best to avoid possessing and using marijuana and you certainly don’t want to drive under the influence of marijuana.
