There will be changes to how THC products and hemp cases will be handled as Florida law evolves relating to marijuana.
Concentrated marijuana, or THC oil, is still considered to be a felony possession of a controlled substance in Florida. At my law practice in St. Petersburg, I have witnessed an influx of THC oil cases over the last few years. Most of these cases involve young people who were unaware that marijuana oil is a serious crime. Likewise, most involve a single cartridge of THC oil and a vape pen. The fact that even a trace amount of THC oil left in the vape pen will result in a felony arrest demonstrates how far behind Florida’s marijuana laws are compared to the rest of the country.
