MIAMI – Medical marijuana smokers may be one step closer to lighting up legally thanks to a Florida senator, according to a Central Florida News 13 report.
State Senator Larcenia Bullard, D-Miami, recently filed a senate bill to legalize cannabis for medical purposes, in an effort to get it on the 2012 ballot.
Representative Jeff Clemens of Lake Worth also introduced two pieces of legislation—the House Joint Resolution 353 and SJR 1028.
While the opposition says it is a gateway drug that should remain legal, Florida Cannabis Network executive, Jodi James, says the choice should belong to doctors and responsible adults.
We should take tax it, we should control it," James said. "If someone is growing it, it should be there responsibility alone. We believe by regulating it and controlling it we are going to be keeping it out of the hands of children as opposed to an unregulated market."
