Bills designed to bring the legalization of medical marijuana before voters in the state of Florida have been filed in both chambers of the state legislature.
House Joint Resolution 353 and Senate Joint Resolution 1028 propose that the question of allowing marijuana for medical use should appear on the 2012 ballot as a statewide referendum. If approved by at least 60 percent of the voters, the state constitution would be amended.
We first reported on these bills back in November, and now they are ready to be pushed by advocates into hearings and votes.
The Florida Cannabis Action Network has launched a website to urge the Governor and members of the legislature to support medical marijuana.
Executive Director of the FCAN, Jodi James, said, “This is the first time since 1978 that cannabis advocates will have a sustained presence in the Legislature.”
If you live in Florida and support medical cannabis, your time is now. 2012 can be the year you help the people suffering in your state under a regime of dangerous prescription pills forced on them by corrupt pharmaceutical companies and the corrupt politicians who support them with prohibition laws.
Shouldn’t voters in Florida at least get a chance to decide?
