A medical marijuana initiative has been brewing in Florida for a couple of years by an organization called "Patients United for Medical Marijuana". The problem is it has been hard to get much traction due to a lack of funds, volunteers and resistance from politicians. John Morgan, a high profile Orlando attorney, joined PUFMM and is willing to spend a couple million of his own money to get it on the ballot in 2014, but it's going to take volunteers and people just spreading the word. So far they have collected 110K+ signatures, enough to get the petition reviewed by the Florida Supreme Court. Since Morgan has joined in the fight the name has been changed to United for Care – Patients United for Medical Marijuana. Petitions can be downloaded here: http://www.unitedforcare.org/petition And mailed to: People United for Medical Marijuana Post Office Box 560296 Orlando, FL 32856 I've sent letters to my local representatives on the subject and for the most part get a "blah, blah, blah… I don't think marijuana should be legalized. Blah, blah, blah…. Feel free to contact me on any other matter" response. But, if 700,000 petitions can be collected by February 2013, it is outside of their hands and it ends up on the 2014 ballot. (source) Medical marijuana isn't going to legalize itself so it's up to us to help make this happen. If we do nothing but complain about the status quo we will have nobody to blame but ourselves. A ballot initiative is the only way it's going to happen.
