I am posting this post verbatim from http://www.unitedforcare.org/right_before_my_dad_passed because it is vital that Florida enact this law, I beg all Floridians to get out and vote for this on November 4, 2014. Although over 80% of Floridians believe Medical Marijuana should be available to people like myself who are suffering the measure requires over 60% of the voters to vote in favor for it to pass and become law. Strangely, many of the opponents to this measure are not residents of Florida and I have read that the largest contributor that funds the opposition movement supports Medical Marijuana in Israel, but opposes it in Florida. Please get out and vote and consider volunteering to knock on doors or contribute to this effort in anyway you can.

Medical marijuana is legal in nearly half of the states in the country. And where it’s legal – none of the scary, apocalyptic consequences promised by the opposition have come true. Violent crime has gone down, youth consumption has remained flat, and society has not collapsed. I
Here’s what did happen: patients got access to another form of medicine, safer and less addicting than what doctors were legally allowed to recommend before.
We’re going to win this thing – but the No on 2 folks are well funded and pushing a lot of misinformation. We need your help:
Please join me in supporting Amendment 2, compassionate care for patients that need it, and help us to victory. Contribute today.
