  • The effort by a group called Regulate Florida comes after a long string of legal hurdles have blocked REC in the state. 
  • Florida’s all-MED market generated $1.2B in 2020 sales, making it the largest MED market and fourth largest overall after California, Colorado and Michigan.

  • Another more business-friendly group called Make It Legal Florida has said it would make a ballot push in 2022 but hasn’t yet taken action. 
  • Other states which could vote on MED or REC in 2022 include South Dakota, Maryland, New Hampshire, Nebraska, Ohio, Arkansas and Missouri.
