Matt Gaetz will “host a medical marijuana delivery to a Northwest Florida family,” his legislative office announced Tuesday.
And the Fort Walton Beach Republican invited reporters to join him as he tags along for the ride.
Surterra Therapeutics will deliver the first shipment of medicinal pot Thursday morning to an as-yet-undisclosed location in the Panhandle.
Gaetz, a candidate for the 1st Congressional District, championed medical cannabis in the House.
He joined the bipartisan effort to allow low-THC cannabis for children who suffer from debilitating seizures and other diseases.
Gaetz co-sponsored the 2014 Compassionate Use Act with Democratic state Rep. Katie Edwards.
That legislation became the framework for the marijuana growing and delivery system devised by the state Department of Health.
