Fair Labor Standards Act
Under Florida law, marijuana is not reimbursable within Florida’s workers’ compensation system and, as a matter of law, could not under any circumstances be “medically necessary” as that term is defined and used in Florida’s statute. Furthermore, the federal Controlled Substances Act classifies marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance, having no accepted medical use. Federal law further makes all possession and use of it illegal throughout the United States. Accordingly, referral for or treatment by means of medical marijuana for work related injuries is not covered under workers’ compensation.
