The vast majority of voters in Florida are in favor of Amendment 2 to legalize medical cannabis, according to a Florida Chamber of Commerce statewide poll released less than six weeks before the initiative is up for a vote.
According to the poll, 73% of Florida voters support Amendment 2, with just 22% opposed to the measure. Only 5% remain undecided.
If passed into law, Amendment 2 would legalize the possession and use of medical cannabis for those with a variety of conditions who receive a recommendation from a physician.
The initiative would authorize state-licensed dispensaries as a means of safe access for patients; these dispensaries will be supplied by licensed cultivation centers.
Being a citizens’ initiative, Amendment 2 needs 60% support to be passed into law, something it clearly has according to this new poll.
The Florida Chamber of Commerce poll of 617 registered voters was conducted between September 15th and September 20th, and has a margin of error of +/- 4%.
