Florida medical marijuanaI was asked by a reader to share a crowd funding effort for a march for medical marijuana in Florida. Below is more info. If you are able, please consider making a donation:

Our group is trying to gather funds to rally in Tallahassee in support of medical marijuana. Whether it is in the legislative session or rallying on the streets, there is no question that educating the public on this subject is essential to get our legislators to pay attention to the voice of The People.

Any monies that are raised will be going to transportation, permits, and other necessary fees that are needed to get our campaign off the ground.

We greatly thank you for any support you may offer us in our efforts which will help seriously ill people who need it the most.

Read more about the event, and make a donation, at this link here.

  1.  

    Let’s march in every city in Florida the same day.

    •  

      I am in to much pain to have a march.I say everyone should blow their horns at the same time.OR what about a recount of the votes…….

  2.  

    I had a lot to say earlier. But I can’t let disappointment get the better of me. Let’s just march.

  3.  

    Tallahassee should be part of Ga or Alabama. That whole area is conservative, Babtist hillbillies. They have no reverence to Miami or other Florida cities. We will never get them off their asses. When will Florida wake up and make Orlando which is demographically correct to be the capitol?

  4.  

    It would make a big difference if there was a march in every city in Florida, all on the same day and at the same time. Every news channel would cover it. Not just in Tallahassee. I live in Naples. I’m ready. Don’t assume all people from Ga or Alabama are all conservative. I grew up in Alabama. The same goes for people that live in Tallahassee. The march needs to be in EVERY city.

    Lets make a big difference. If a new petition gets passed around lets ask everyone to chip in One dollar for future TV ads. Lets get one million signatures. There are many ways to support medical marijuana. It takes time and education but the time is now. We all need to help and take a part in this. Let’s make history !!!!

    I suggest you get this on the ballot again, in 2016, when liberals and progressives actually get off their lazy asses and vote.

    •  

      Liberals turned out for THIS election. Amendment 2 needed only 250k votes to pass. However, 1 in 5 liberals and 29% of Democrats (more than twice the number needed to pass Amendment 2 — over 568,000) voted AGAINST Amendment 2.

      So you can stop insisting Liberals can get this passed by themselves. Had only 1 in 6 liberals voted against Amendment 2 this time, it would have passed.

      •  

        Liberals don’t show up in midterms the way they show up in Presidential election years.

        I dealt with your bullshit in the other thread: 21% of no votes came from Democrats. 51% of no votes came from Republicans. And you want to blame the Democrats. Because of course you do.

        “So you can stop insisting Liberals can get this passed by themselves.”

        You’re a liar. Not once have I insisted that liberals could pass this by themselves. In fact, I said quite the opposite. Anyone without Glibertarian colored glasses on can see that Republicans, who supplied 51% of the no votes, are the well that could have been tapped to pass this amendment.

        If you really want to pass this thing, get it on the ballot in 2016.

        •  

          No, you didn’t deal with it, at all. I asked you to explain why 29% of Democrats came down on the wrong side of this issue, and all you did was point fingers at Republicans. So I’ll ask you a 7th time, Scott — why did 29% of Democrats vote AGAINST Amendment 2?

          Just for all of you playing at home, had only HALF the Democrats who voted NO on 2 voted yes, Amendment 2 would have passed. Scott would have us believe that Democrats/Liberals/Progressives are categorically in the corner of cannabis law reform advocates, when that clearly is not the case.

          Now watch how Scott, once again, refuses to explain why 29% of the people we’re supposed to consider our allies voted the wrong way.

          •  

            You’re lying again… You admitted you don’t read what I write, so how can you know what I dealt with?

            I specifically said that there are conservative Democrats who vote for prohibition because they profit from it, or because they’re old and stubborn–your excuse for conservative Republicans. You can go read my latest reply in that thread for more details, but you said you wouldn’t. So, you don’t read what I say, you can’t say what I said or didn’t say… because you don’t know…

            So, you’re bullshitting.

            “Scott would have us believe that Democrats/Liberals/Progressives are categorically in the corner of cannabis law reform advocates, when that clearly is not the case.”

            More lies. I never said that ALL Democrats are in the corner of reform. Never. Let me know when you want to argue with me instead of your straw men.

            Now watch while whatever his name is refuses to acknowledge what I’ve said, refuses even to read it, and then pontificates upon my writings as if he’d read all of it.

          •  

            LOL — by all means cut and paste what I didn’t read…. (wait for it, this should be fun)

            By now, you’ve figured out that you’re epistemologically incapable of knowing what I have and have not read. So let me explain how and why your exaggeration just made you look stupid.

            If I “don’t read what [you] write” then how have I been able to throw it back in your face, over and over, that you have yet to explain why 29% of Democrats who turned up to the ballot box voted THE WRONG WAY.

            You’ll have to do more than simply label them “conservative” — that was also a demographic distinction used in contrast with “liberal” on the ballot survey. We already know 20% of Liberals voted No on 2 — which was at least 568,000 votes. I’ve pointed this out to you nine times. So simply tacking on your least favorite adjective is NOT an explanation because, with the most charitable pigeon hole math in your favor, it only accounts for 9% of the Democrats who turned out, who subsequently voted No on 2.

            So let me rephrase to take away that last inch of semantic shadow you’re hiding behind — explain to me why at least 568,000 LIBERAL Democrats voted against Amendment 2, considering it only needed 250k to pass.

          •  

            “by all means cut and paste what I didn’t read.”

            Why do I have to do your work for you?

            “You’ll have to do more than simply label them “conservative””

            Oh, I see… I respond to your bullshit, you say I didn’t. I say I did, then you come back with “I don’t like your reply.”

            More genius.

            “We already know 20% of Liberals voted No on 2 — which is at least 568,000 votes. I’ve pointed this out to you nine times.”

            No you haven’t. Maybe four. And I’ve answered it. But here, let me try to help you out since you seem to have problems with basic political science. Liberals v conservative is the left right axis of the political compass. We also have an up and down axis that is broken down as authoritarian (up) and libertarian (down). We left libertarians are against prohibition. But there are also self-described liberals who are authoritarian. Many of them are prison guards (union), cops (union), lawyers and even pot dealers who make more money with weed illegal, since many of their customers paying top dollar are self-medicating.

            Does that help?

            What gets me about you, though, is your disingenuousness. You wave off the 51% of total NO votes cast by conservatives because they are old and stubborn, but you refuse to see the basic fact that a lot of liberals are also old and stubborn and have been casting votes for drug warriors for years down there on the front lines of the drug war.

            You also refuse to acknowledge the basic fact that only 21% of all the NO votes were from liberals while 51% (MAJORITY!) of the no votes were from your Republican friends who you so want to defend at every turn.

          •  

            LOL — you’re skipping text, again Scotty. Selectively picking and choosing which text you cut and paste just makes it glaringly obvious what you CANNOT address.

            So I’ll ask again, a fortieth time. Explain why 20% of self-identified LIBERAL democrats (at least 568,000 voters) who turned up at the ballot box voted NO on Amendment 2. And please, as always, keep in mind Amendment 2 only needed 250k votes to pass.

            Also keep in mind that how 60% of Republicans voted doesn’t answer my question. Neither does changing the subject, shifting goal posts, or any other nonsense you’ve produced during this temper tantrum you’ve been throwing. I know it’s difficult for you to admit how your boys are NOT blameless, especially when you consider that they turned out in numbers significant enough to make the difference.

            But I’m afraid you’re just going to have to suck it up long enough to form a coherent thought within the bounds I’ve given you. And this time, don’t just skip the parts you don’t like.

          •  

            You’re bullshitting again, Wowy.

            “Explain why 20% of self-identified LIBERAL democrats (at least 568,000 voters) who turned up at the ballot box voted NO on Amendment 2.”

            Here. I’ll just copy and paste what you ignored. Again.

            > Liberals v conservative is the left right axis of the political compass. We also have an up and down axis that is broken down as authoritarian (up) and libertarian (down). We left libertarians are against prohibition. But there are also self-described liberals who are authoritarian. Many of them are prison guards (union), cops (union), lawyers and even pot dealers who make more money with weed illegal, since many of their customers paying top dollar are self-medicating.

            Now go look in the other thread where I’m about to expose more of your lies.

          •  

            LOL — I ask you a simple question, and you give me an obfuscated answer. So let me simply cut and paste the text you neglected to explain why your reply, here, is/was/always-will-be inadequate:

            “You’ll have to do more than simply label them “conservative” — that was also a demographic distinction used in contrast with “liberal” on the ballot survey. We already know 20% of Liberals voted No on 2 — which was at least 568,000 votes. I’ve pointed this out to you nine times. So simply tacking on your least favorite adjective is NOT an explanation because, with the most charitable pigeon hole math in your favor, it only accounts for 9% of the Democrats who turned out, who subsequently voted No on 2.” — me

            So I’ll ask again, for the 87th time. Explain why 20% of self-identified LIBERALS (at least 568,000 voters) who turned up at the ballot box voted NO on Amendment 2. And please, as always, keep in mind Amendment 2 only needed 250k votes to pass.

            Your explanation of the multivariate political spectrum doesn’t answer this question in the slightest, Scott — just because you desperately want me to believe there are prison guards who are self-described Liberals doesn’t make it true. But please, try employing another empty words fallacy. Maybe I won’t notice and I’ll follow you down the rabbit hole.

          •  

            “give me an obfuscated answer”

            Awww… what’s the matter? Anything beyond the old right/left split too hard for your little liar’s head?

            “there are also self-described liberals who are authoritarian. Many of them are prison guards (union), cops (union), lawyers and even pot dealers who make more money with weed illegal, since many of their customers paying top dollar are self-medicating.”

            What’s obfuscated about that? It’s pretty simple. Authoritarian democrats, like authoritarian Republicans, voted against it. Libertarian Democrats and libertarian Republicans voted for it. I’m not sure I can make it any simpler for your poor little brain… You’re going to actually have to do some thinking, instead of just bullshitting.

            “explanation of the multivariate political spectrum doesn’t answer this question in the slightest”

            It most certainly does. And quite well, too. But you’re already bought into your own bullshit at this point, so there’s no turning back. All you have left is to lie about what I’ve been saying here for months now.

            If you want to reform our marijuana laws, you have a MUCH BETTER CHANCE of doing so if you elect Democrats. This is a basic fact that only bullshitting Glibertarians too chicken to use their real name refuse to acknowledge.

          •  

            Oh my, it looks like I made a mistake. Out of 120 blue candidates for local office, all of FOUR endorsed the Amendment. Oh, and Charlie Crist. That gives you one point on which I was wrong and you were right, but honestly, I was really only thinking of candidates for US Congress, seeing as how you’re constantly buffing CPC genitalia.

            So moving on, I’ll ask again, because while I missed one detail, it doesn’t render the discussion moot.

            Explain why 20% of self-identified LIBERAL democrats (at least 568,000 voters) who turned up at the ballot box voted NO on Amendment 2. And please, as always, keep in mind Amendment 2 only needed 250k votes to pass.

          •  

            See how feeding trolls just makes them fatter?

          •  

            It also makes them spew out easily debunked bullshit. But, yes, point taken.

          •  

            From the other thread, my favorite lie of yours so far:

            “Speaking of which, how many blue candidates actually endorsed Amendment 2? Oh, right, NONE OF THEM.”

    I think where we failed and Robert Plasthorn was right on the money with the silver Tour we should have concentrated on the Senior vote and benefits of cannabis. The youth don’t get out and vote were my father voted form his Hospus bed.

  7.  

    What I want now is a constitutional amendment for full legalization right to grow and commercial taxation and tax exemption for medical. The prosperity that cannabis will bring. The simple fact is that marijuana is labor intensive and it will bring green jobs

  8.  

    You are asking people to help with this i would love to help with the march but i live in sunrise fl and the thing is i need the medical marijuana i was card holder back in Washington State when you need a card for it and the medical marijuana really help for the problem I have so please let me know what can do to help with this you can email me at ScrappyDDoo@gmail.com to let me know thank you and have a nice day

    •  

      I know how you feel we would love to move back to fl but if we can not get our medical pot that we need for our health then we will have to stay in washington state

  9.  

    We lost in florida due to a number of reasons in my opinion. united for care didnt spend any money on tv ads in s. Fl. And their stupid red and blue signs with no pot leaf or any symbolism did not excite the progressive crowd but our biggest problem was the uber rich sheldon adleson from nevada funding the no on 2 campaign wich of course was spreading reefer madness lies like it was 1937 but at the end of the day we lost by 2% if every stoners in fla would have cared or even knew about the amendmeant & got out & voted we would have won so we only have ourselves to blame if you live in Fl.

  10.  

    If you dont live here, you would not understand thé polotics. because wages are so low in Florida people work very hard and because there’s no snow here people can work a lot more hours even though the8 polls were open early there too many people who didn’t make a serious effort to vote what can you say look at who are governor is and the Democrats didn’t do much better by putting a ex Rep8ublican up there

  11.  

    We have a better chance of seeing Jesus than getting the Republicans in Tallahassee to even consider the issue of marijuana. Even if, by some kind of miracle, the Legislature did approve it, the governor has already stated he strongly opposes it (even medical). The only way it will be legalized here is via constitutional amendment on the ballot, and like last time, I’m sure the Republicans will again fight tooth and nail to try and keep it off the ballot. 2016 is our best shot, as Rick Scott will likely nominate 3 very Conservative judges to the state Supreme Court within the next 4 years (to replace 3 of the moderate judges who all face mandatory retirement), and by 2018 the court will likely be too Conservative to allow the amendment on the ballot (it may even be by 2016). Florida wanted 4 more years of Republican control, and Florida will now pay dearly.
