Florida Cannabis Attorney Sally Peebles Will Discuss the Potential Impact of Cannabis Legalization in Florida with Rootwurks

May 15, 2024

In April, the Florida Supreme Court ruled that it would not block a ballot initiative to legalize adult-use cannabis, leaving it up to voters to decide in November if they’ll approve a regulated legal cannabis market for the Sunshine State. But what will Florida’s legalization initiative allow and what would it mean for the cannabis industry if the country’s fourth-largest state approves adult-use legalization?

In this upcoming Rootwurks webinar on May 21 at 12 p.m. CT, Vicente LLP Florida-based partner Sally Kent Peebles and Lauren Niehaus, the Executive Director of Government Relations at Trulieve, will discuss the campaign to legalize cannabis in Florida, what legalization could look like in the state, and what impact legalization in Florida would have on the cannabis industry and marijuana consumers across the country.
