    Floridians All Fired Up For Legal Medical Marijuana

    Gee, we could give people medical help they want, Create an industry, and grow enough for the whole country in Florida alone.
    Get rid of half the Coast Guard patrols, DEA, Courts, Jails, and create tons more tax revenue too instead of enriching 3rd world Narco traffickers/exporting money.
    Phenomenal prospects even beyond the more important Freedom.
    A Bit too late for one of my parents who really wanted it to improve appetite.
    Now it will be legalized for medical purposes at least, in Florida.

    And it's not just the young/under 29 (at 95%), over 65 voters are at 83%!
    A smaller but significant majority 55/41 also support Recreational Marijuana.

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – Floridians really, really support the legalization of medical marijuana, according to a poll released Monday morning. The poll found that 88% of Florida voters approve of medical marijuana, including 83% of voters age 65 and older and 95% of those between 18 and 29.

    The support also crosses party lines, the poll by Quinnipiac University found. 80% of Republicans — whose level of support was the lowest of any subgroup — back the idea and just 19% oppose it.

    Forget the stereotypes of stodgy old folks living out their golden years playing canasta and golf,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, said in a prepared statement accompanying the results. “Almost nine in 10 Floridians favor legalizing medical marijuana and a small majority says adults should be able to possess small amounts of the drug for recreational purposes.”

    The overwhelming support should cheer backers of a proposed constitutional amendment on the November ballot that would allow doctors to order marijuana for patients. Opponents of the measure have pumped at least $3 million into efforts to defeat Amendment 2, which has received heavy financial backing from Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan,
    “Even though a proposal to legalize medical marijuana, on the ballot this November, must meet a 60% threshold, these numbers make a strong bet the referendum is likely to pass,” Brown said.

    Florida voters also support allowing recreational marijuana by a 55% to 41% margin, but men and women are split on the issue, the poll found. Men support allowing Floridians “to legally possess small amounts of marijuana for personal use” by 61% to 36% while women are more skeptical, with 49% approving and 45% opposed. Young voters support the idea by a 72% to 25% margin, while voters 65 and older are opposed by a margin of 59% to 36%.

    The survey also found that 71% of voters would support having a medical marijuana dispensary in the town where they live. The lowest level of support for having a dispensary in their neighborhoods comes from voters over age 65, with 57% in favor and 37% opposed. “No ‘Not in My Backyard’ mentality here. By an almost 3-to-1 majority, Florida voters would allow a medical marijuana dispensary near where they live,” Brown said.

    And the poll found that 44% of Florida voters say they have tried pot, including 51% of men, 39% of women and 48% of voters ages 18 to 29. Just 23% of voters over 65 say they’ve tried marijuana.

    Um. 83% of Seniors approve it.
    80% of Republicans approve it. And they are the Lowest approval.

    It's wanted 55/41 Even AS Recreational!

    I would say "Get over it Pops", but Seniors, GOPers, both Strongly approve.
    So I guess it's "Get over it.. Prude".

    Should have been legalized decades ago, a whole chunk of our war on drugs which was useless as **** anyway would have been slashed.

    Floridians + pot = amazingly new crazy news stories.

    oh Florida, don't ever change!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I hope it all opens up but I will say that I want it tightly regulated. Right now in Colorado they legalized pot but it is pretty much not regulated and people are making and selling all sorts of edible pot treats and the proportions of ingested THC is so out of whack that people are eating massive amounts of it when its just a few cookies. While you can't officially OD on pot, an over consumption makes for some seriously, seriously bad times. Also I don't like how they are making it more appealing to kids with candies like gummy bears and what not.

    Right now the marijuana industry has public sympathy for having been unfairly under seige for so long but the tide will turn and they will eventually be viewed more like the tobacco industry. Especially if they keep appearing to target kids with their products.

    The whole country is moving towards legalization. It likely won't be that long a transition.
