One significant obstacle stands in the way of recreational cannabis being legalised, and that’s the restriction of citizen drives. Pushed by Republican representatives, the bill limits the impact citizen petitions can have on constitutional amendments. Given that four of the amendments involve changing current cannabis law, this is likely to be a major issue in the future.
In real terms, the law is far more complex. The Florida Department of Agriculture’s official stance is that it’s not legal to sell hemp or CBD, but Nikki Fried, the Agriculture Commissioner, is currently attempting to push through legislation to bring state law in line with federal law.

Feminized cannabis seeds only produce female marijuana plants, meaning that you won’t have to worry about removing any male marijuana plants from your garden.

In order to get bud from your female marijuana plants, you’ll have to remove the male marijuana plants from your garden before they begin to pollinate. If the male marijuana plants aren’t removed in time, they’ll pollinate your female plants, which will prevent the female plants from flowering. As an end result, the female plants will produce seeds instead of bud, meaning that you won’t be able to harvest any marijuana.
