Update: This post is from early 2013. The 2014 medical marijuana ballot initiative is approved and ready to go before the voters in November.
It’s been an impressive turnaround in just a year, thanks to the incredibly hard work of organizations like United for Care.
Despite the fact that an estimated 70% of Floridians support medical marijuana, lawmakers have failed to move a bill that would put the framework for such a system in place. The “Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act” didn’t even make it to hearing. While one lawmaker is promising to reintroduce an updated version next year, some are hoping to get it to the ballot instead.
