Good stuff.In case you dont know Debbie Wasserman-Schultz-National Democrat Chairperson and the Republicans are unified in opposing the democrats in FL. -who are supporting legalized pot for medicine-and also who are controlled by the powerful trial lawyers groups lead by the Morgan and Morgan law offices and (sorry) Charley Crist-the presumptive democrat candidate for Governor of FL.It appears that Wasserman-Shultz is tired of the powerful Morgan law offices gaining undue power and influence in the state democrat party.She probably resents Crist recently renouncing his Republican past and then easily walking over to the democrat side and -presto-he is going to be nominated to run for Governor of FL.-just like that.After all there are a number of life time democrats that might like to run for that office.Good going Debbie.Keep up the good work.

Pot has WAY LESS side effects than taking manufactured pharmaceuticals.

GOP needs to get OUT of the pocket of Big Pharma and stop prohibitting people from using this alternative method of providing comfort for many ailments.

I agree! This Political Hysteria by uninformed politicians to ban almost every drug that is marketed, and voted for by the people is just insane..I bet my bottom dollar, that they and their kids all partake of the weed.....but they assume the ?Moral high ground when it profits them..those that are suffering can just keep suffering, as long as the politicians profit...they are pathetic!

Sheldon Aldeson the heb republiCON has written a $2.5M check to fund the opposition to Amendment 2. That adds to the $200,000 they collected on their own. Shelly (and his high pitched nasly voice) has ulterior motives ... he wants to build casinos in Florida. Amendment 2 will pass with an overwhelming majority.
