I signed the petition in spite of the fact that it's being pushed hard by an infamous personal injury attorney that lost his driving privilege due to numerous DUIs.

Good. This was already a 'must vote' year for me to try to kick out Rick Scott, and getting to vote for medical marijuana will be a bonus.

I wish it was a full legalization measure, but medical is at least a step in the right direction.

*hic* For the people.

Did either of you get that ridiculous push poll about it?  Whoever was behind it is definitely not behind the legislation.

The Florida Legislature plays no direct role at this point.  The Legislature can propose amendments but not reject them.  The Legislature can argue that the wording of the ballot question does not adequately explain the consequences of the amendment, but the Supreme Court decides that one.  The Supreme Court has discretion to re-word the questions but usually they decide to just throw the whole thing out.  Anyhow it sucks to get all of those signatures and then get your amendment thrown out, but it rarely happens.
In the last few cycles the legislature has proposed a bunch of amendments, with many of them being challenged and rejected by the court.  Our legislature is made up of morons who get paid $26k a year to have a job with an 8-hour commute.  John Morgan is an ass, but he's not a moron.  This ballot question will stand.

But he's "for the people"!

I also find it interesting that Republicans are crying foul that this is more about increasing turnout of liberal voters than it is about a sincere desire for medical pot.  That may be true, but they wouldn't be the first.  Every previous cycle our legislature has proposed 2 or 3 amendments adding exemptions to our property tax law.  Of course that was about increasing turnout of low-tax/no-tax voters.  Sure, it was about the property tax too, but not just that.  Be real now.

how many of those signatures will be "disqualified", because someone doesn't want to see this go to a popular vote?
 
2014-01-25 03:28:03 PM
Wait.  I thought Florida already had medical marijuana laws...
 
2014-01-25 04:11:38 PM
Is that magic number 3 or 420?

I didn't see that coming.

It is the south, mostly.  The south resists every rational change.

A must vote year? Good FSM, you should treat every significant election as 'must vote'.

Hey, it's safer than pretty much every other drug we see in articles about Florida.

Would laugh my ass off if the medical marijuana that is approved is the stuff that is high in the medical analgesic chemicals but low in the high inducing THC chemicals.
 
2014-01-25 04:47:16 PM
Florida is the "reddest of the red" states; I know, I live there.

Even if they've got enough votes to get it on the ballot, the existing morons in office will simply throw it out on some technical reason before it can come up for a vote. They're currently sitting in their offices with the "ha ha, I'm in office and you're not" mentality.

The real problem is that Floridians are so stupid, they insist on voting their party line even though they completely disagree with what their candidate does. I see it every day.

I don't smoke pot, but damn if it shouldn't be legal.

This.
However, this may interfere with all those 'pain' clinics that dispense pills.
Should be legal everywhere.

I just walked in on my daughter toking up on a 6' grafx bong.

I have no idea what to do, so I thought it would be best to get on Fark and make a post about it.

A glass bong in that range must have a little kickstand on the end. I'm guessing it was more like two feet, or maybe an elaborate hookah.

Explain that spending a huge amount of money on a very-hard-to-conceal piece of drug paraphernalia is not a good use of allowance money?

Then get her a small vaporizer for her birthday. Her lungs will thank you.

It takes two to toke! One to hold and one to smoke...

My most recent weed experience was three bites of a cookie at a Thanksgiving party. Literally, took a cookie, broke it in half, then in half again -- so, ONE QUARTER of a cookie. One hour later, obliterated high. I was the guy on the sidelines of the conversation, giggling my ass off. Steely Dan never sounded so good.

I love how marijuana was made into a Schedule 1 class controlled substance by nutjobs like Harry Anslinger and paper product moguls like DuPont, but somehow there is still a morality stigma held by otherwise normal middle class people that pot is somehow wrong and you're stupid to smoke it.

Brilliant propaganda, or just ignorance?
