Florida came very, very close to legalizing medical marijuana during the 2014 election. After a narrow defeat, United for Care made it clear that they would try again in 2016. I'm happy to say that they are getting started early, and have a petition up for Florida voters to sign. If you don't live in Florida, obviously you can't sign the petition. However, if you do live in Florida, and I know we get a lot of readers from Florida, make sure to sign the petition to help bring medical marijuana reform to Florida. More info can be found below:
Thank you for helping us get medical marijuana back on the ballot for 2016. We need everyone to sign the new petition.
