The legalization of medical marijuana in Florida would be a big
mistake. Its medical value, although lauded by some, is highly
questionable. Various renowned medical organizations have expressed
opposition or caveats.

Medical legalization is a pathway to recreational legalization --
Colorado and Washington state, thus far. The marijuana drug is
infiltrating Colorado schools! Much of the pot is sold as food: pot
bars, pot gummy bears, pot cookies, pot suckers, pot hard fruit
candies, and even pot soda. Is this what we want in Florida?

Fourteen states that legalized medical marijuana are now in various
stages of legalizing recreational use. However, efforts to legalize
medical marijuana have failed so far this year in eight states! Let's
join Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight in his opposition to medical
marijuana. Vote NO on Amendment Two.
