The marijuana-based treatment "Charlotte's Web", recently approved for distribution by the Florida Legislature, remains locked in a legal dispute, the Orlando Sentinel reports. 

The state Department of Health established rules for making the product available, but several large growers protested those rules and have delayed the release of the product. According to the Sentinel, a ruling has been expected from Judge W. David Watkins of the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings for weeks and is due to be released no later than Tuesday.
