Despite Sheldon Adelson and his billions of dollars – millions of which have been earmarked to fight Florida’s Amendment 2 – a new poll indicates constituents in the Sunshine State strongly support the passage of the November 8th medical marijuana amendment.
With an estimated population of just under 21 million people, the recently published poll offers some much-needed hope for those working to pass Florida’s proposed medical marijuana amendment next Tuesday, according to the Sunshine State News.
“St. Leo University released a poll on Monday showing Amendment 2 garners 71 percent support. Less than a quarter of those surveyed–22 percent–are opposed to Amendment 2 while 7 percent remain undecided.”
Ignoring the millions of dollars in anti-medical-marijuana ads Adelson has imposed on the state, and soundly rejecting his confused philosophy, Florida’s voters have a high bar to hit in order to pass Amendment 2 next week – 60 percent.
Representing unwavering growth since a June 2016 poll indicated 65.1 percent of Florida’s surveyed ‘likely voters’ would cast their ballot in the affirmative for Amendment 2 – support for Florida’s medical marijuana amendment has jumped 6.2 percent over the subsequent months.
According to St.Leo.edu, “The poll of 1,028 likely Florida voters was taken from Oct. 22 through Oct. 26 and had a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.”
If passed, the Florida medical marijuana legalization initiative, a.k.a. Amendment 2, would explicitly allow medical marijuana to be provided as a treatment for patients that suffer from cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, PTSD, ALS, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
