HEARING HELD IN POT SMOKING CASE: Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers will hear arguments about lifting an automatic stay of a ruling that would allow patients to smoke medical marijuana. Gievers on May 25 overturned part of a law passed year by the Legislature that barred patients from smoking medical marijuana. The law was designed to carry out a 2016 constitutional amendment that legalized marijuana for a wide range of patients, but the smoking ban quickly drew a legal challenge. The Florida Department of Health appealed Gievers’ ruling on allowing smokable marijuana, which led to an automatic stay of the ruling. Plaintiffs then filed a motion seeking to vacate the state. Gievers will consider that request at the hearing. (Monday, 9 a.m., Leon County Courthouse, 301 South Monroe St., Tallahassee.)
