    Marijuana Legalization Support Overwhelming

    Marijuana Legalization Support Overwhelming

    Should marijuana be legalized for medical purposes in Florida?

    That was a question being asked in the Florida Legislature during the 2013 session, with Rep. Katie Edwards, D-Plantation, filing a bill to allow patients suffering from illness to be able to use medical #$%$ with a doctor’s permission.

    HB 1139, the “Cathy Jordan Medical #$%$ Act,” was named in honor of a woman who has lived with ALS since 1986 and uses marijuana to alleviate her symptoms. Last month, Manatee County sheriff’s officers raided her home and seized more than 20 pot plants.

    Edwards’ bill is not likely to get a hearing. Sunshine State News asked if our readers think it should. More than two-thirds of readers felt that marijuana legalization should have its day in front of the Florida Legislature.

    The voting closed Wednesday with 77 percent in support and 23 percent opposed.
