Florida medical marijuana initiative goes before state supreme court
By Eric Veram
TALLAHASSEE, Florida: On Friday, June 28, supporters of the Florida Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative announced that they had finalized the measure's language and were submitting to the Florida Supreme Court for review. According to John Morgan, the effort's primary mover, the measure is tightly crafted so as not to allow for misinterpretations that could lead to legalized recreational use of the drug. He said, "This will be regulated by the state. What we wanted to do with our language is for the state to understand this is not intended for recreational use in any sense." In order to qualify for the 2014 ballot supporters are required to collect a minimum of 683,149 valid signatures by the petition drive deadline on February 1, 2014.
