Florida laws outline medical marijuana guidelines

Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Friday new regulations for how the state will implement medical marijuana, one year after 71% of voters approved its use. 

Senate Bill 6-A provides guidelines for a medical marijuana registry, and Senate Bill 8A exempts medical marijuana from state sales taxes, provides a list of medical ailments that apply to legal use, and clears hurdles for medical marijuana testing laboratories, among other guidelines. 

SB 8A also gives employers the right to maintain a drug-free workplace: “This section does not limit the ability of an employer to establish, continue, or enforce a drug-free workplace program or policy. This section does not require an employer to accommodate the medical use of marijuana in any workplace or any employee working while under the influence of marijuana. This section does not create a cause of action against an employer for wrongful discharge or discrimination.”
