Medical Marijuana Will Be on the Florida November Ballot

On Monday, the state Supreme Court in Florida approved in a 4-3 decision an initiative to put whether to legalize medical marijuana in the state on the November ballot .

This is a defeat for Attorney General Pam Bondi (R), who fought to keep the question off the ballot. But for personal-injury lawyer John Morgan, this is a victory after he spent $4 million on a medical marijuana petition drive.

Come November, Florida would join 20 other states and would become the first Southern state to approve marijuana for medical use if 60 percent of the votes are in favor of the measure.
