Florida’s failure to pass medical marijuana was the biggest bummer of the 2014 midterm elections. Undeterred by the setback John Morgan, the more or less spokesperson/mascot for Amendment 2, promised to try again in 2016.
It is a sad day for Florida voters and patients alike as the bill to legalize medical marijuana in the state has gone down in defeat.
A common misconception about medical marijuana is that the program is often abused and is more about getting people high than helping sick people. You can see this narrative play out in Florida as the Vote No on 2 campaign continues.

As it has been mentioned before, Florida will be voting on a constitutional amendment in November that will allow for the sale and use of medical marijuana. With 88 percent of Floridians in support, according to a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, the constitutional amendment is expected to pass with overwhelming support.

They are a small, well funded, group called the Drug Free Florida committee and they seek to “educate” Florida about the “dangers” of marijuana.
