Miami : Green light for the sale of marijuana-based groceries – .

Very soon all Florida dispensaries will add edible medical marijuana to their inventories, after this Wednesday night the Florida Department of Health gave the green light to companies to produce these edibles and sell them in our state .

For Michael Puentes, founder of a medical marijuana clinic in Westchester, smoking, vaping or using cannabis creams is not always the best option for a patient in a lot of pain.

Four years ago, Florida voters approved the medicinal use of marijuana, and in 2019 the state legislature allowed patients to smoke it.

Companies must follow the following rules. Edibles cannot be primary or bright colors. They should not look like any candy available in commercial stores and should be packaged properly.

With this new regulation, companies that want to manufacture or produce groceries must obtain an annual permit that can cost up to $ 650.
