Twelve Florida counties are short on medical marijuana petitions



The push to legalize medical marijuana in Florida is nearing its final days, and the group responsible for collecting the petitions to force a vote in November is driving hard to the hoop to make that happen. United for Care, the group behind the massive petition drive, has until February 1 to turn in 700,000 signatures.
“It looks like we have around 1.1 million,” Ben Pollara, campaign director for United for Care, said yesterday. The Broward-Palm Beach New Times has the details.
