Hello all my first post here. I know that in Oregon it has just set the stage for big tobacco to take it over with monsanto's help.
Oregon's largest district attorney's office announced Monday that it would dismiss pending cases involving violation-level marijuana possession in light of Measure 91's statewide passage last week.
Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill's office released a statement to The Oregonian on Monday afternoon, saying prosecutors will dismiss a total of 50 pending marijuana cases. All involve marijuana-related activities that will be legal when the new law becomes effective for possession and cultivation July 1, 2015.
According to the statement, the office will not prosecute "future charges for conduct related to marijuana possession and delivery of marijuana which will become lawful under Measure 91 absent exceptional circumstances."

On November 5, PRG launched the most comprehensive effort ever to obtain the first congressional hearings on extraterrestrial related phenomena since 1968. This launch began with the shipping of the complete video record of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure to every congressional office accompanied by a social media campaign. The goal is comprehensive hearings by February of 2015.

Nice try at taking a shot at my intelligence....and my status as a Florida resident.
I hope you are right about this one, but I know better. Florida's legal system, probation system, and for profit prison system all make a killing off cannabis being illegal. They were the ones(and Sheldon Anderson, a billionaire casino owner) who were paying for the vote NO on 2 ads prior to the election, they were the ones who were all over social media and news sites saying how the bill is full of loop holes, they are the Republicans and they are now in control. There is no way they will allow something they fought so hard against to pass in two years.
Unless something happens on the federal level, Florida will not pass a medical bill.
You forget that politics in Florida is full of madness. The will of the people does not matter when those in charge are making a fortune off criminalizing a plant. I know my own state and very few civics professors have the real life experience I do.
What would you like to wager on the issue?
