Medical Marijuana Campaign In Florida Heating Up

There were reports late last week that People United for Medical Marijuana in Florida received some large additions to their team. Well known Florida personal injury attorney John Morgan and political strategist Ben Pollara are now helping lead the campaign, and from what media outlets state, they have a lot of experience with fundraising. Add that to the great work that has already been going on in Florida by People United for Medical Marijuana, Robert Platshorn, and Irv Rosenfeld and I think big things are in the future for Florida medical marijuana.

Florida is a tough state for initiatives due to the district signature gathering requirements, but it’s still a worthwhile endeavor. Florida has S.B. 1250, The Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act, introduced by state Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, and H.B. 1130, the Medical Marijuana Act, introduced by state Rep. Katie Edwards, D-Sunrise. Also, signatures and donations are being gathered for an initiative found here, please do your part! Below is Robert Platshorn’s video, which I encourage everyone to watch and spread as far as you can:

    I THINK ALL THE States should have both Medical & Pleasure…People should not be Locked up for Smoking or having on there person any Cannabis. I think the Government Lied to the American People. Cannabis is NOT ADDICTIVE!! And it certainly is NOT A GATEWAY DRUG!! So many things we could use Cannabis & Hemp for.

  • Leave this on blogs everywhere – in your own words or use mine. Esp in States considering Medical.

    What needs to be done is to make endocannabinoid a household word. Leave it at every blog you comment at – not just doper blogs – along with a link to the science. Endocannabinoids A Video. Flood the zone.

    and:

    There are more endocannabinoid receptors in the body than any other receptor type.

    The endocannabinoid system is a major regulator in the body implicated in almost all diseases including cancer.

    Medical Marijuana prohibition is a crime against humanity and a violation of the religious precept – heal the sick.
