Thread: Medical Marijuana Trying To Come Back In 2016

    Thumbs up Medical Marijuana Trying To Come Back In 2016

    The fight isn't exactly over yet.

    From United For Care:
    The fight for medical marijuana in Florida officially resumes today.

    The Secretary of State has approved the new petition - found here - that will put medical marijuana back on the ballot in 2016.

    YOU MUST SIGN THE NEW PETITION EVEN IF YOU SIGNED THE PREVIOUS ONE. We're starting from scratch and have to get another 700,000 validated signatures.

    The new petition more explicitly addresses key issues brought up by the opposition:


    • While parental consent requirements existed under state law and would have applied to the 2014 amendment, they are spelled out directly in the new petition. Additional protections are added by requiring the Florida Department of Health to verify parental consent.
    • While the Florida Supreme Court rejected the argument that the 2014 amendment could be used for a non-debilitating condition, the new amendment explicitly articulates that conditions must be debilitating and more specifically rules out non-debilitating conditions.
    • Though nothing in the 2014 amendment immunized doctors negligently recommending medical marijuana, the new amendment more specifically states that negligence and malpractice are not subject to immunity under the law.
    • Under the 2014 amendment, the rules and procedures for approving caregivers were, by default, tasked to the Department of Health. Under the 2016 amendment, the Department of Health is specifically required to establish qualifications and standards for caregivers, including the stated ability to conduct appropriate background checks.


    Download, sign and mail the new petition today. Click here to get it.

    3,370,761 people - almost 58% voted for medical marijuana in Florida in 2014. This total - half a million more than Gov. Rick Scott and almost 900k more than voted “no” - is clear proof that the people of Florida want a medical marijuana law.

    If you want to help us, please forward this to your friends. You can also support the 2016 petition mobilization effort by making an early donation to United for Care here.

    We will not stop until the patients of Florida get access to the medicine we know will help them.


    Thank you for your continued support.

    - Ben Pollara

    Any condition can be debilitating. If you can't sleep, that can be debilitating. If you have headaches, they can be debilitating. Menstrual cramps can be debilitating.

    Are they spelling out what conditions are and are not debilitating?

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    It sounds like it. Att this point, I think Morgan is getting desparate, and will do anything to get people's approval on this.

    True, but it'd be nice if the ambulance chaser weren't the main backer of the campaign.

    I'm gonna have to disagree.. no law making it illegal (under any circumstances) would be best

    The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are out numbered by those who vote for a living !!!!!!!
