It’s tough times here in the key battleground state of Florida, there’s only one option on the ballot to push marijuana legalization forward: the Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Medical Conditions, otherwise known as Amendment 2. The more liberal use act, The Florida Cannabis Act (#15-19), will not be on the November 8th ballot.
Under Amendment 2, marijuana will be considered a legal treatment for patients suffering from cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
In Florida, early elections have already kicked off, and a 60 percent supermajority voteis needed for the amendment to pass. But voters in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., are reporting that Amendment 2 is not even on their ballots, according to Fox 13, which could be a problematic legal issue beyond marijuana legislation.
