Talk to Florida Governor Rick Scott About Medical Marijuana

Tell Governor About Medical Marijuana In Florida by Rob Kampia I just returned to D.C. from a conference in Palm Beach, where I briefly spoke with Gov. Rick Scott (R) about medical marijuana.

Coming Out Of The Marijuana Closet

Are You In ‘The Marijuana Closet’? Marijuana is a taboo subject to some members of society. As a result, there are many marijuana consumers that limit the amount of people they admit their marijuana use to. For instance all of my friends and family know that I consume marijuana, but it’s not something I told all of my co-workers at my last job due to employment policies that would fire me if my marijuana consumption became known. I have never looked at it like I’m ashamed to be a marijuana consumer. I just have always felt that I am protecting
