Protect Florida's Hemp Industry and Small Businesses

SB 1698 - Governor Desantis - Florida Hemp Industry - Florida MMTC

Patrick O’Brien created this petition to urge Governor Ron DeSantis to veto SB 1698, addressing a critical issue affecting Florida’s residents and small businesses in the hemp industry.

Dear Fellow Floridians,

Our thriving hemp industry and small businesses are under immediate threat from SB 1698. This bill, influenced by large-scale medical marijuana centers, would impose restrictive regulations that could devastate our local hemp industry, jeopardize over 100,000 jobs, and limit access to beneficial hemp products for countless Floridians. We need your help to urge Governor DeSantis to veto this harmful legislation.

By signing this petition, you are taking a stand for:

  • Preserving Florida’s booming hemp industry and supporting local entrepreneurs.
  • Defending small businesses and ensuring they can compete fairly in the market.
  • Protecting the rights of individuals who rely on hemp products for health and wellness.
  • Upholding free market principles and preventing monopolistic practices by multi-state cannabis operators.

Together, we can make a difference and ensure that Florida’s hemp industry continues to thrive, providing jobs, economic growth, and accessible hemp products for all. Sign the petition now and share it with your friends, family, and community to help us reach our goal.

IMPORTANT: SB 1698 threatens to make the possession of any full-spectrum CBD product a felony offense in the state of Florida. This means that you could be criminally charged for using a product that is widely available and used by millions of people around the world.

This proposed legislation not only undermines your rights as a consumer but also threatens the livelihoods of small businesses and the health and wellness of millions of Floridians who rely on full-spectrum CBD for relief from chronic pain, anxiety, and other health conditions.

Why Veto SB 1698?

Governor DeSantis’s veto could save over 10,000 small businesses and more than 100,000 jobs. The proposed legislation threatens the hemp industry’s growth and supports monopolistic practices. Hemp products offer significant health benefits without the intoxicating effects of marijuana. Maintaining current regulations ensures a balanced market and prevents black markets.
