As of Wednesday, the state of Florida has collected 692, 981 valid signatures which is more than enough to put medical marijuana on the ballot in November. A similar amendment gained the support of 58% of voters in 2014, but failed to meet the required 60% threshold to amend the state constitution. Millions of dollars have been donated to this initiative and we are hoping for better results for the state of Florida this year. If passed, the amendment would allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for people with “debilitating conditions” such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.
“This November, Florida will pass this law and hundreds of thousands of sick and suffering people will see relief,” Orlando lawyer John Morgan said in a written statement. “What Tallahassee politicians refused to do, the people will do together in this election.”
