Florida Initiative to Legalize Recreational Cannabis Receives Approval from State

floridaAn initiative to legalize recreational cannabis in Florida, put forth by the group Regulate Florida, has received approval from the state, giving advocates the go-ahead to begin collecting signatures in an attempt to place it on next year’s ballot.

The initiative – titled the Florida Cannabis Act – would make it so that “possessing, using, displaying, purchasing, or transporting one ounce or less of cannabis” is entirely legal for those 21 and older.

The personal cultivation of up to six cannabis plants would also be allowed, and state-licensed retail outlets would be authorized to distribute the plant.

In order to make the November, 2016 presidential election ballot, Regulate Florida must collect nearly 700,000 signatures from registered Florida voters.

The full text of the Florida Cannabis Act – which would amend the state’s constitution – can be found by clicking here.

    i wish it were the case but lat time we tried to change the constitution we got only 58%. That was with medical Cannabis. The liers against it made up lies and sheep followed with there 42% . This time no rules and still looking for 60 % ouch. why cant we just go for a law and go for 50%. then add it to the constitution after people see it works and the fear is gone?
