November 4th, 2014 is going down in history as one of the most important midterm elections in the United State and maybe the greatest progressive change for the state of Florida.
The most important debate for Floridians is going to be whether to vote YESON2; which will then legalized the use of Medicinal Marijuana for the entire state.
- What is amendment #2 about?
If pass, the law will allow doctors to issue certifications for medical marijuana to Floridians with "illnesses or conditions for which a physician is certain that the medical use of cannabis would most likely outweigh the potential health risks for any patient."
A recent polled conducted by Anzalone Liszt Grove Research (ALG) Show a 62% approval in favor of passing the law; other polls show a higher number of approval.
Regardless of the fact that amendment 2 may pass there are many confusing questions for voters and having them answer will help determine the outcome.
The Tampa Bay Times published an article listing the most important facts about Amendment 2 and the legalization of Medical Marijuana. Stephen Nohlgren, a writer for the publication said, “Here is what is known about how medical marijuana would work in Florida:”
Below is a list of those answers:
- Who could use medical marijuana?
- What medical conditions would qualify?
- When could a patient start legally using marijuana?
- How much marijuana could a patient possess?
- How would a patient fill a prescription?
- Where medical marijuana would be sold?
- What if the Department of Health writes regulations so restrictive that usage is effectively banned?
- Can caregivers possess marijuana?
- How old must a patient be?
- Would insurance cover it?
- What about using it at work or in schools?
- Would information on identification cards be public?
- Could the Legislature set up its own system to regulate medical marijuana?
- Could the Florida Supreme Court ruling on the ballot language be appealed?
- Could pot-smoking in public be regulated just as cigarette smoking is regulated?
- What about DUI?
Many other questions will surface before and after the election but hopefully Floridians will come out and vote on November 4th and voters will determine if the state is moving towards progress or wants to remain in the dark ages.
