In Florida, more ballots appearing to omit Amendment 2, a ballot amendment that would legalize medical marijuana in the state, have surfaced.
On Oct. 20, 2016, the Florida chapter of NORML filed a lawsuit against the Broward County Supervisor of Elections after it was discovered that Amendment 2, an amendment that would legalize medical marijuana in Florida, was excluded from several mail-in ballots.
Although the Florida legislature failed to pass meaningful marijuana reform, two of the state’s largest counties, Miami-Dade and Broward, are considering two nearly identical measures that would allow law enforcement to punish marijuana possession with fines instead of just arrests.
