By voting “YES” on amendment 2, you’re putting healthcare decisions back into physician’s hands. Our legislators have recognized that marijuana can be used as medicine by passing Charlotte’s Web Law and the Right to Try Act, but those laws are not enough.here
“C’mon, man.....How can he call him a con artist and dangerous, and object to all the controversial things he’s said, but then say, ‘I’m still going to vote for him? That is the sign of someone who will say anything, do anything, pretend to be anybody just to get elected, If you’re willing to be anybody just to be somebody, man, you don’t have the leadership that Florida needs in the United States Senate.”Barack Obama
NORML of Florida ued the Broward CountySupervisor of Elections on Thursday after some mail-in ballots did not include a question about a state constitutional amendment on allowing medical marijuana.here
The Hillsborough BOCC has voted 6-1 in favor of the $600m plan to raid the existing budget to further subsidize sprawl. Outgoing commissioner Kevin Beckner was the lone no vote. Virtually 100% of the spending will occur in areas where developers are building houses, but are not providing adequate infrastructure. Instead, the county is increasingly taking money from taxpayers in established neighborhoods (Tampa), and using it to subsidize new growth. here
After a show of force by citizens at Wednesdays meeting they still voted against us. Hillsborough Dems wake up, you have the power, do the the math.

On November 8th you can keep Mr. Beckner's seat and get rid of the god-awful Sandy Murman.
Tim Schock has had plenty of chances to debate Pat Kemp. He failed to show at last Friday’s Tiger Baydebate in Ybor City. . He has repeatedly declined offers by the League of Women Voters to schedule a debate. Sandra Sroka, president of the Hillsborough County League of Women Voters, said that the League had made tentative plans to host a forum between Kemp and Schock, but that Schock said he had a conflict on the initial date they proposed. She said they would see if they could change the date, but she says that after not hearing back from Schock, they had to make a decision. Vic DiMaio with the Tampa Tiger Bay Club says that Schock also had a conflict on the date that they had scheduled, and that they couldn’t reschedule.here
---------- Schock is nothing but a developers pawn. With the $600 Million our current commissioners just gave away to developers he is the last person we need on our commission. With Trump bringing the GOP down and the Clinton landslide coming he knows that Kemp is about to kick his ass. Kemp is a local icon and has the voters trust. He, has nothing to say to voters!
With medical marijuana easily more popular than Scott IN 2014
Scott had to become a champion for medical marijuana. With Amendment 2 back on the ballot again this year (and looking good to pass) Scott-the-profiteer had to get ahead of it. In state legislative sessions from 2014-2016 Republicans pushed through regulations that shaped Florida’s cannabis industry into a for-profit pharmaceutical research lab controlled by six wealthy and politically connected groups. Given Scott’s history of fraudulent healthcare dealings, it should come as no surprise that he would ensure Florida’s program was designed to work for him and his friends.here
Florida INC. CEO Rick Scott wants $85 million to give to his corporate buddies. He apparently has given up on the idea that he can create jobs, which he claimed he would do in his election campaigns. Scott’s strategy to lure jobs from other states ignores the facts of job creation. Most new jobs are homegrown, not lured from elsewhere.here
Florida already has one of the lowest tax burdens in the nation and lax
