Floridians have two days to sign medical marijuana petition



The push is on to make Florida the next state to legalize medical marijuana. Organizers have one month to get 700,000 signatures on a petition to get the issue on the November ballot. But since state laws require that the petitions be paper petitions that are mailed in via snail mail — not online ones — and then validated, the petition organizing group, United for Care, is asking that all petitions come in by Tuesday, January 7.
United for Care is backed by megamillionaire John Morgan, who has donated $2 million to the effort. The group is working around the clock to collect enough signatures before the fast-approaching deadline passes.
