Are Floridians ready to legally smoke pot for fun? Miami Beach legislator files bills.

795

Miami Beach Rep. Michael Grieco made the first go at legalizing recreational marijuana in Florida on Tuesday, filing two separate bills that would legalize personal pot use and create an excise tax on the drug. HB 1117 , co-sponsored by Orlando Democratic Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, would make recreational marijuana legal. The bill specifies that only those 21 or older could purchase the drug in quantities of no more than 2.5 ounces at a time and restricts smoking it to private places only.
