MIAMI (CBSMiami/NSF) — Amid a long-running debate about legalizing medical marijuana, a South Florida lawmaker wants to go a step further and allow the recreational use of pot.
Sen. Dwight Bullard, D-Miami, filed a detailed proposal (SB 1176) on Monday that would allow people age 21 and older to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana for personal use and to cultivate up to six marijuana plants.
The 50-page bill also would provide details about issues such as the sales and taxing of marijuana. Bullard also filed a recreational-marijuana bill last year that never received a committee hearing.
