Great Job Florida Voters! You finally performed a selfless act by approving Medical Marijuana Use in Florida. This should send a clear message to Washington that people are ready for National Medical Marijuana Laws. Maybe the new administration will see that so many people in our great land want cannabis to be legal.
It was a hard fight in Florida with months and months of radio ads, bill boards and John Morgan pushing every button he could to get support of this law. Hopefully the new legislation will spark reform in the regulations that were originally put forth. The access is so limited in Florida now. But the advent of so many more people able to qualify will force reform on that front. Every other state that is struggling to pass legislation should take note on the success of the statewide campaign for legalization in Florida.
Florida has such an eclectic mix of people. All walks of life come to this state for the great weather and set down roots. We have one of the largest populations of billionaires, one of the largest populations of homeless Vets, and everything in between. So Florida voting for Marijuana by 70% is more than just a mandate. It is a message to Federal lawmakers that America is ready for National Legislation and complete access, not just medical use.
Most people who voted for this law, did so in the hopes that recreational use is just around the corner. There is an appreciation for those who will immediately benefit from this as a treatment drug for so many ailments, but most want ready access to this, just like alcohol. And it’s coming in Florida.
Have you ever noticed when people from Florida and California share a viewpoint it has a huge impact on the rest of the country? So now that the two powerhouses in this nation are on the same page about cannabis, you can expect the feds to take note. Full legalization is bound to be a reality in the near future.
