LARGO, Fla. (AP) - Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri told a Florida newspaper that he supports a bill introduced by a state senator that would allow a variety of patients to use a number of different marijuana strains.

The Tampa Bay Times (https://bit.ly/1z7kTL0) reports that Gualtieri said he vigorously opposed last year’s proposed constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana. But he said Sen. Jeff Brandes’ bill is “narrowly tailored,” gives local authorities control over dispensaries and addresses many of his other concerns about the amendment.

Gualtieri said he would like to see the Brandes bill amended so patients could use only vaporizers, tinctures or topical oils, rather than smoking marijuana.
