Florida lawmakers clash on smoking ban on medical pot - Tampa Bay Times

The road to reversing the ban on smokable medical marijuana may not be a smooth one. Gov. Ron DeSantis, who tasked the Legislature with changing Florida law to allow smoking medical marijuana, is facing a rift between chambers: The Senate is confident in its support, but the House is not so eager.
