A cannabis plant that is close to harvest grows in a grow room at the Greenleaf Medical Cannabis facility in Richmond, Virginia, on June 17, 2021.

The state’s largest medical cannabis operator and the country band The Bellamy Brothers are backing a 2024 ballot initiative that would legalize marijuana in Florida for recreational use.
