Florida – A recent poll suggests that the legalization of medical marijuana is supported among a significant percentage of Florida voters. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the Quinnipiac University poll released on Monday found that 88 percent of those surveyed approve of making the drug legal for medicinal purposes, while only 10 percent opposed the idea.
A majority, 55 percent, also favored allowing adults to legally have small amounts for recreational use.
The issue of whether marijuana should be legalized is one voters in the state will get to decide on in November.
John Morgan, the personal injury lawyer whose efforts helped get the matter on the ballot, is quoted by the AP as stating, “People do not want those who are terminally ill or debilitatingly ill to be arrested and locked up for trying to get better or for trying to get peace… I think it was well spent because we’ve educated people, they’ve listened and they’ve believed.”
