Today, at the Supreme Court, United for Care's attorney, Dean John Mills, pushed back on the false and outlandish arguments made by the Attorney General's office. The AG's positions against the petition boiled down to two main concepts, both patently and demonstrably untrue: 1) that the language would allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for literally any condition, regardless of whether it is debilitating, and 2) that the petition sends mixed signals about marijuana's legality under federal law.
The petition language is clear: Doctors MUST certify that the condition they are prescribing for is debilitating to the patient. It also explicitly warns the voters that nothing in the amendment allows a violation of Federal law. (It should be noted that 20 states and the District of Columbia have already legalized medical marijuana, and 82% of Florida voters want it.)
While we have confidence that the court will rule in our favor, we can't wait for it's decision. We have to collect all the petitions we need within the next 30 days.
It is going to be really, really close - and your contribution will allow us to add even more petition gatherers.
Thank you for all you're doing,
United for Care
