Florida Medical Marijuana Campaign Effectively Relaunches Today

 Medical marijuana will be on the ballot in 2016 and the voters will pass what the legislature failed to.

The legislative session ended today - and with it the hopes of short term relief for thousands of sick and suffering patients throughout Florida. The House of Representatives decided to simply quit work, three days before the end of session, and with that, medical marijuana legislation is dead in Tallahassee. The same people who stood up against Amendment 2 last year, many stating that this was an issue better handled by legislature - simply turned their backs on patients, and ignored the will of nearly 3.4 million voters.  Despite courageous leadership from Senators and Representatives in both houses and both parties, Tallahassee has failed us again.

Clearly - the only way this is going to get fixed is through a constitutional amendment and our new petition. We have a donor - ready to match your donation through 
the end of May. here

"Today the Florida House of Representatives failed us, yet again. I never had much faith in Tallahassee to do the right thing. But I continue to have tremendous faith in the compassion of the people of Florida to do what the politicians refused to. Today marks the first day of the 2016 campaign for medical marijuana. We will put this issue back before the voters. We will win. Believe!" John Morgan
