While Florida’s governor said he did not support limiting THC in his state’s medicinal cannabis market.
Governor Ron DeSantis’ comments on THC limits are significant as Florida is one of several states considering placing THC limits on marijuana products.
Florida Measure HB 1455 would limit THC to 10% for flowers and 60% for concentrates.
The bill is one committee vote away from a state house floor vote but has stalled in the Senate, Florida Politics reported.
“I didn’t approve (limit) THC,” DeSantis said, according to Florida Politics. “That’s not something I’m pushing.”
However, the governor raised concerns about the strength of marijuana products.
“If you look at some of the things that are coming down now, there are a lot of really bad things in there,” he said.
“It’s not exactly what you would have had 30 years ago when someone was in college doing something.”
Other states where anti-cannabis groups are trying to set THC limits are Colorado, Massachusetts, Montana, and Washington.
Vermont limits the potency of flowers to 30% and focuses on 60% for recreational cannabis products, but the state market for adult uses has yet to be rolled out.
The state has not set efficacy limits for medical marijuana products.
