Florida -- With medical marijuana appearing on the Florida ballot in November, the state's voters are weighing in once again on whether they would approve legalized cannabis. Florida's medical marijuana measure, if approved, could make it the first southern state in America to go green, so to speak.The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows that 88 percent of registered voters in the Sunshine State would approve marijuana for medical use. Ten percent opposed the idea.
All groups, even those 65 and older, supported medical marijuana at a rate of more than 80 percent, Quinnipiac says.Not only that, but voters would allow small amounts of recreational marijuana for personal use at a rate of 53 percent in favor and 42 percent opposed, according to the university.No surprise here: People aged 18 to 29 support full-on recreational legalization at the highest rate found by Quinnipiac, 72 percent in favor to 24 percent opposed.Republicans opposed recreational legalization 64 percent against to 33 percent in favor.Nonetheless, Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, says:If Vegas were giving odds on medical marijuana becoming legal in Florida, the bookies would be betting heavily. With almost nine in 10 voters favoring legalization for medical purposes, and bills allowing such use advancing in the State Legislature, the odds seem pretty good Florida may join the states which already have done so.Pollsters interviewed 1,413 registered voters in Florida. Quinnipiac says the results have an error rate of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.Source: Huffington Post (NY)	Published: May 13, 2014Copyright: 2014, LLC Contact: scoop huffingtonpost.comWebsite:   -- Cannabis Archives

I've been wondering what had become of you. It's been so long since we've heard from you! I'm so glad to see you're still kicking back.

Florida's Day Will Come
It's been awhile since I lived here. If fortune sends me, there are better places than Florida. Being viciously scolded about drugs repeatedly, often by people who turned out to be users, was part of my experience here.There's one key value-money. All of the Drug War rhetoric is about that. Drugs are portrayed to be super dangerous and wicked,and the mouths haven't gotten used to the idea that they should stop talking. One thing that absolutely vacated my brain was trust. ANYONE can tell you, it's time to get tough on drugs. You got to admire United for Care--their task is hard in this state.

I'm ready...
I've been ready. Thanks to all the activists that have worked so hard to make all this happen. That includes you Friend Of Marijuana.I'm even starting to invest in the penny stocks of the companies that should stand to gain a great bit in the coming years. As of now this only consists of GW Pharmaceuticals and a few other businesses such as hydroponics suppliers, organic growers and testing labs in Canada and WA and CO.
I've faithfully followed this site since 1997 or 98. Love you gals/guys for your passion.BTW, did you see what is happening with the dea (small letters on purpose) seizing some legal hemp seeds due to be planted in Kentucky? Legalized for states that allow it. In the latest Farm Bill as I understand.
