Florida Supreme Court Allows Medical Marijuana Initiative to Remain on Ballot

Here is the decision in Advisory Opinion to the Attorney General re: Use of Marijuana for Certain Medical Conditions. The vote was 4-3. Opponents argued that the initiative violates the single subject rule, and also that the title is misleading.

    If this popular proposed constitutional amendment gets 59% in favor at the polls, it might be in order for the Constitution Review Commission to remove or adjust the supermajority requirement as permissible pot smoking will affect everyone in a way the inhumane confining of pregnant pigs doesn’t. That issue given thoughtful treatment at polls became the example of subject matter to not address constitutionally.

    Attorney General Bondi’s ilk will bring focus upon the 60% requirement in their attempt to tell FL voters how much they’ll misunderstand about this particular voter initiative so many of them signed and have heard so much about,given the recent spate of state reforms in marijuana laws. Forty percent of states have already passed medical pot laws.
