Sept 27, 2016 – It looks like Florida is headed to become a medical marijuana state. The recent polls indicate the measure on the ballot November 8th in Florida has huge support, which it needs to clear the super majority hurdle of 60% in favor.

In 2014 Florida failed to pass a measure by only a percent or two, gaining over 58% approval but still failing due to the vote needed. However, according to recent polling numbers, Florida appears to be well over 70% in favor with just a few weeks to go until the election, even with big dollars flowing into the state from wealthy opponents such as billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

From Saintpetersblog:

The 2016 medical marijuana ballot initiative has strong support among Floridians, according to a new poll.

A new poll from the Florida Chamber Political Institute found 73 percent of voters would support the amendment. The survey found 22 percent were opposed to the ballot initiative.

The poll of 617 registered voters was conducted from Sept. 15 through Sept. 20. The survey has a margin of error of 4 percent.”

All I have to say is congratulations to Florida! It lloks really good for you, and you deserve to come into the light with the rest of the sane states allowing medical marijuana. Next, full legalization so the seniors can party on!
