Florida gets marijuana on the ballot for November

The Supreme Court in Florida has approved the ballot measure of legal recreational marijuana for the November election. The provision will need 60% of the vote to be approved.

This is a big win for marijuana enthusiasts in the state, considering the Supreme Court leans heavily to the conservative side, and the state Attorney General had requested that the court reject the effort. His argument is built around there being no language that reminds voters of the federal ban on legal marijuana. The Supreme Court has rejected two previous efforts to place legalization on the ballot in previous years. This initiative clearly took pains to right any errors from previous versions.

“We do not believe the summary would confuse a voter into thinking that the Legislature is required to authorize additional licenses… It clearly states that the amendment legalizes adult personal possession and use of marijuana as a matter of Florida law,” reads the opinion by the court.

The amendment would also allow companies like Trulieve to sell marijuana once licensed.
