Many people who decide to drive while chemically impaired may not even realize they broke the law in doing so. Although alcohol is the most common mind-altering substance involved in impaired driving charges, driving under the influence of any drug that impacts your ability to drive is a violation of Florida law. That could include driving after taking prescribed medication, even if you use it the exact way that your doctor recommends.
It depends. Florida's state hemp program is now law and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) is currently drafting the rules that will be used to implement the program around the state. Based upon recent Hemp Rules Workshops held by the FDACS, the regulations regarding the sale and manufacturing of CBD products will differ. For instance, the Hemp Rules Workshop discussed permitting hemp extract in pet food, pet treats specialty pet food and specialty pet treats. Special rules for labels on these products will likely exist. As for Hemp Extract, or CBD, in food, these products will likely need to meet FDACS inspection requirements or provide some sort of evidence related to the source of the CBD and meet all food safety regulations. The FDACS draft rules contained a subsection on Hemp Food Establishments and therefore it can be assumed that selling food containing Hemp Extract (CBD) is likely going to be a reality in Florida and those wishing to participate should contact a lawyer to assist with the permitting, fees, and regulations associated with the new business.
