MMJ Has 500K Floridian Supporters
The Florida group, "People United for Medical Marijuana," has collected 500,000 signatures from those who are for legalizing medical cannabis. The initiative still needs more signatures before its deadline of February 1st, however, the state may be on its way to having a comprehensive MMJ initiative on this year's ballot.
As of Monday, the group submitted a total of 523,168 valid signatures. The state will accept 683,149 signatures in order for the initiative to be submitted into the ballot.
Florida is looking to be the most populated southern state to legalize medical cannabis. Although a similar medical marijuana ballot failed in 2014, things may be looking up for the state this year.
