Florida: Lawmakers Reject Proposed THC Cap

Tallahassee, FL: Language initially passed by members of the House to impose a cap on the potency of THC available in products marketed to certain medical cannabis patients is dead for the 2020 legislative session.

Members of the Florida Senate stripped the language out of a broader bill before sending it back to the House. Representatives ultimately re-approved the measure without the provision.

Florida was one of a handful of states where lawmakers this year have proposed imposing thresholds on permissible amounts of THC. Proposed language to place a 10 percent THC limit on adult-use concentrate products in Washington state stalled in committee. In Arizona, proposed legislation to limit medical cannabis products to no more than two percent THC was passed by the House and is now pending in the state Senate.
