Medical Use Ballot Measure:Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization, Amendment 2

ASA’s Position: Support

The 2016 version of Florida’s Amendment 2 is a slightly more scaled back version of the 2014 version that received more than 57% of the vote. However, since Florida requires that ballot amendments must receive more than 60% of the vote, the amendment was defeated that year. The key differences in the 2016 version of Amendment 2 are that it more explicitly states which qualifying conditions are eligible and it makes clear that parental consent is required for medical use by minors. The program created by Amendment 2 would be significantly more comprehensive and serve many more patients than the limited access that is currently provided under the current low-THC, CBD-focused program. ASA supports passage of Florida’s Amendment 2.
