Marijuana news from contributing authors and staff writers on the latest in marijuana and medical marijuana
Although recent weeks have shown that Amendment 2 — the initiative to make medical marijuana legal throughout the state of Florida — was in danger of failing to pass, a new poll conducted in the past week by public opinion research firm Anzalone Liszt Grove shows that Amendment 2 is still likely to pass come November 4.
Amendment 2 needs 60% support for passage, which would allow medical marijuana in the Sunshine State. The recent poll puts support for Amendment 2 at 62%.
Moreover, according to the Anzalone Liszt Grove survey, 62% of likely voters say that they have either already voted yes or will vote yes for Amendment 2, with 35% opposed to the passage of the initiative and 3% still undecided.
“Florida doctors may soon prescribe medical marijuana for those suffering from debilitating diseases. But turnout is important,” writes Anazalone Liszt Grove founder John Anzalone. “If the yes on 2 campaign continues turning out strong supporters to the polls, then medical marijuana can pass statewide.”
Florida residents, please go out and vote on Election Day to allow medical marijuana patients to legally possess and use the medicine that they need. Encourage family, friends, and neighbors to do the same! For voting information and locations, please visit the following website.
