Today the Florida Supreme Court ruled that the ballot initiative that would allow the citizens of Florida to decide if marijuana should be legal for medical purposes.  In an opinion today, January 27, the Florida Supreme Court ruled that the language in the bill is permissible.  Specifically, the Court ruled that the amendment did not violate the single subject rule and the language was not clearly and conclusively defective.

So what does that mean?  Well come November the voters in Florida will decide if they will join twenty states and the District of Columbia in allowing some form of legalized cannabis use.  Should make for a very interesting election cycle.

Would you vote to allow medical marijuana?
