Regulated Substances Practice Group

Changing public opinion and the laws pertaining to regulated substances, including Medical Marijuana, are developing rapidly. As recently as June 9, 2017, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 8-A, which implements the Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative, also known as Amendment 2.

The State’s changing views and laws governing Medical Marijuana are emerging quickly and shifting the interplay between state and federal laws. This expanding change in policy has created a large and vibrant marketplace for businesses interested in the regulated substances sector.
