The first bill that Gov. Ron DeSantis ever signed into law, which legalizes medical marijuana, has the time stamp of 1:48 p.m. March 18.

Of course, that’s when SB 182 was officially filed with the Florida Department of State, and is a poor indication of the actual time DeSantis signed it.

According to his official schedule, at that exact time, DeSantis was playing at the Valspar Championship Veterans Alternative Celebrity Pro-Am at the Innisbrook Golf Resort in Palm Harbor.

And here are the photos to prove it. Behold. (Side note: The governor’s office did not respond when asked what DeSantis shot on Monday.)
