Florida Supreme Court Approves Medical Marijuana Initiative

(BROWARD NEW TIMES)   In the week the Super Bowl is being played by two cities (Seattle, Denver) in states that legalize pot, Florida just got that much closer to being a part of the blaze.

The Florida Supreme Court has approved to have a constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana be put on the ballot this November.

The court ruled 4-to-3 in favor of the ballot initiative on medical marijuana at 2:00 p.m. on Monday.

“By reading the proposed amendment as a whole,” the judgement reads, “and construing the ballot title together with the ballot summary, we hold that the voters are given fair notice as to the chief purpose and scope of the proposed amendment, which is to allow a restricted use of marijuana for certain ―debilitating medical conditions.”

  • As a Floridian and a pro cannabis advocate this potential medical cannabis issue to voters will not go far enough for the majority who want it decriminalized completely. Only limited specific ailments will qualify for medicinal use. Not good enough, all people should have the right to medicate themselves for whatever reason they desire. Like Colorado and Washington, it is all about money and profit. Cannabis can be produced for 20 cents an ounce in a large grow, only to turn into 300 dollars per ounce sold to the public. It is capitalistic gouging and pathetic.
