"Both leaders of the Legislature say they're gonna do it but, you know, if they don't we have the ability to dismiss this lawsuit as the Sword of Damocles hanging over their head".

Morgan is also the person who sued the state over the smoking ban, publicizing it with the slogan, "No smoke is a joke".

"This has been my fight", said Morgan, who stood next to the governor Thursday.

"I don't want Jewish parents to not want to send their kids to a Jewish school because they fear that makes them more likely to be targeted for harm", the governor said.

"This thing should have been implemented, we should have moved on, and I don't want to continue fighting some of these old battles", DeSantis added.

"Look, we've got a lot of fish to fry in Florida", DeSantis said.

Medical marijuana advocates agree, but only if the change actually happens.

They believe it's a first step toward dropping appeals in other cases like the limitation on the number of growers licenses.

Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday gave state legislators a mid-March deadline to repeal a law that prohibits smokable forms of medical marijuana.

The state appealed, blocking the ruling, but DeSantis has suggested he could drop the appeal, if the Legislature doesn't cooperate.

If they don't, he said he will drop the appeal himself.

DeSantis also took aim at the licensing system that the Legislature created for medical marijuana businesses, which he described as creating a "cartel".

"We need to have the peoples' will represented in good law that is doing what they intended". Rick Scott, that seeks to keep the ban in place.

Since then, the Republican-dominated Legislature has been criticized for the way it's implemented the amendment in state law.

DeSantis was joined at his press conference by John Morgan, an Orlando trial attorney who spearheaded the medical marijuana constitutional amendment and filed the lawsuit challenging the smoking ban.

The smoking ban was included in a 2017 law that was aimed at carrying out the constitutional amendment.

Jeff Sharkey with the Medical Marijuana Business Association says that makes it almost impossible for smaller operations to acquire licenses. Court decisions in other lawsuits also ruled those limitations were in conflict with the amendment.

"Many senators share these concerns and have ideas they are interested in advancing, which include smokable forms of treatment", said Florida Senate President Bill Galvano.
