In a state where possession of small amounts of cannabis is a felony,
it is predictable that the status quo administration inundates the
airwaves with anti-medical marijuana propaganda.

There seems to be a suspicious amount of funding from outside special
interests to demonize the legalization of medical marijuana. Most of
the arguments that have been presented in the attack ads are a
regurgitation of debunked and disproven "Reefer Madness" propaganda or
just outright lies.

Twenty-three states already have approved medical marijuana, and all
the exaggerated horror stories the attack ads claim have not
materialized. The facts are out there for anyone who cares to search
the Internet for the truth.

It appears the administration and outside special interests are more
intent on keeping us hooked to Big Pharma's monopoly and its addictive
and sometimes fatal treatments. They are more intent to maintain the
hard line hypocrisy that marijuana be criminalized, even though polls
indicate the public no longer supports that doctrine.

If you would like to give the people of Florida and their doctors a
choice in their medical treatment, vote yes on Amendment 2.
