Saying they failed to heed the will of voters, Gov. Ron DeSantis ordered Florida lawmakers Thursday to eliminate a ban on smokable medical marijuana and, if they don't comply, threatened to drop the state's appeal of a court ruling that found the prohibition ran afoul of a 2016 constitutional amendment.

Gov. DeSantis was joined at the news conference by Orlando attorney and medical marijuana supporter John Morgan, who filed a lawsuit against the state's ban on smokable medical marijuana.

Regarding his support for Jewish school security funding, DeSantis said that Jews are more likely to be targeted based on their religion than any other group in the country and that the state government wants that funding to be an ordinary part of the budget.

"Whether they have to smoke it or not who am I to judge that?"

DeSantis repeatedly mentioned ALS patients Thursday in arguing the Legislature must go further to ensure that Florida's medical marijuana system is helping severely ill people.

Whether the ban is lifted will depend on the legislature's action to drop the appeal.

"I was the principal architect of our state's medical marijuana laws and I am here to confess that those laws need to change", said Panhandle Congressman Matt Gaetz.

He took to Twitter on Wednesday and picked apart the Turkish government's tactics. "I have always been a law-abiding resident". In June, Kanter's father was sentenced to 15 years in prison for what his son deemed as payback for his criticism of Erdogan.

A circuit court judge ruled in May that the smoking ban is unconstitutional, but then-Gov. "I think we're going to see something by mid-March so either the legislature will reform the new law, written a new law a law that's consistent with the amendment calls for or we're gonna dismiss the lawsuit".

The Republican governor said he also wants lawmakers to address other components of a 2017 law that was passed to carry out the constitutional amendment.

"Every day that medical marijuana in the pure plant form is unavailable to patients, Floridians continue to suffer", Fried said.

DeSantis wants to open up the market, by allowing companies to provide specific services, like growing, transporting or dispensing.

"When you distill it and concentrate it, you lose some of the properties and you also increase the strength, which is not always a positive thing", Davis said. The state has also appealed that ruling.

DeSantis said the current law doesn't reflect the will of voters and that it's not up to him what form of marijuana patients use to treat debilitating illnesses. "So I'd like them to address that as well", the governor said.

House Speaker Jose Oliva, R-Miami Lakes, and Senate President Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, indicated they would comply with the governor's request. Therefore, Former-Governor Rick Scott submitted an allure, which avoided flower sales from moving forward until the appeal was dealt with in court. "So we'll give them a couple weeks in session to address the smoking issue".
