Florida Wants Not Only Medical Marijuana but Legal Cannabis Too

With medical marijuana appearing on the Florida ballot in November, the state's voters are weighing in once again on whether they would approve legalized cannabis.

Florida's medical marijuana measure, if approved, could make it the first southern state in America to go green, so to speak.

The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows that 88 percent of registered voters in the Sunshine State would approve marijuana for medical use. Ten percent opposed the idea.

All groups, even those 65 and older, supported medical marijuana at a rate of more than 80 percent, Quinnipiac says.

Not only that, but voters would allow small amounts of recreational marijuana for personal use at a rate of 53 percent in favor and 42 percent opposed, according to the university.

No surprise here: People aged 18 to 29 support full-on recreational legalization at the highest rate found by Quinnipiac, 72 percent in favor to 24 percent opposed.

Republicans opposed recreational legalization 64 percent against to 33 percent in favor.

Nonetheless, Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, says:


If Vegas were giving odds on medical marijuana becoming legal in Florida, the bookies would be betting heavily. With almost nine in 10 voters favoring legalization for medical purposes, and bills allowing such use advancing in the State Legislature, the odds seem pretty good Florida may join the states which already have done so.



Pollsters interviewed 1,413 registered voters in Florida. Quinnipiac says the results have an error rate of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

You're on the way. We have a medical bill going thru the conference know. Hopefully the Gov. will sign it. Next stop recreational. It's inevitable, the "just say no" crowd has lost.
