Drug Policy Action supports The United For Care Campaign to bring medical marijuana access to Florida.
United for Care is a grassroots campaign powered by more than 10,000 volunteers working to pass Amendment 2, which would legalize medical marijuana in Florida for individuals with debilitating diseases or conditions. The campaign is about the fundamental idea that patients should not have to fear criminal punishment for seeking the treatment that they need. For many of United for Care's staff and supporters, medical marijuana is a deeply personal issue.
Passing Florida's Amendment 2 this November requires 60% of the vote. Fortunately, scientific surveys of Floridians have consistently shown broad support for medical marijuana across all political parties, ages, races, and geographic lines. United for Care will continue to organize supporters of the amendment and lead the fight to bring compassionate care to sick and suffering individuals.
