Charlotte’s Web, red tape: Medical marijuana in lim

TALLAHASSEE – In the two years since the Florida Legislature passed a law allowing highly restricted use of medical marijuana to help people with seizures, the measure remains in regulatory limbo with more questions than answers.

Rob Bradley said during a recent hearing of the Regulated Industries Committee. “I find that particularly frustrating and I am sorry to those families that we are not there yet.”
