This week, recreational marijuana became legal throughout the entire county of Canada. Adults can now buy up to thirty (30) grams a day. There are also eight states in the U.S. that have legal marijuana for recreational purposes. Not the case here in Florida however. While some Floridians do have access to marijuana for medical purpose, there’s a big asterisk: No smokeable marijuana. That is illegal in Florida regardless of the reason.
While possession of 30 grams is no big deal in the Great White North (Canada) it can land you in a world of trouble down here in the Sunshine State (Florida). Possession of 20 grams or more is a felony and if you are convicted for possession of any amount, your driver’s license will be suspended for a year, even when it has nothing to do with your car.
