State lawmakers in Tallahassee want to know why its taking so long for people to get their medical marijuana cards.
Christian Bax at the state Office of Medical Marijuana says one word: lawsuits.
"The application process has been complicated by litigation which we are now involved in, regarding the constitutionality of a key provision of that application process," he said. " We are taking all pains to move that process forward as quickly as possible."
Bax says they're dealing with five different lawsuits now dealing with issues like the use of edibles, whether it's legal to smoke your medicine, who gets a license to grow and whether you can grow your own at home.
