Medical marijuana will hit the road in Florida at 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. That’s when two 48-foot billboards urging passage of medical marijuana for Floridians will be unveiled. Strategically placed on Pompano, Florida’s busiest thoroughfare, Sample Road, these signs carry a potent message.
The giant billboards are sponsored by The Silver Tour, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating senior voters about medical marijuana. The Silver Tour’s founder and director of NORML of Florida, Robert Platshorn, is the man who convinced Lake Worth Rep. Jeff Clemens to file Florida’s first bill for medical marijuana in the state capitol, Tallahassee.
The billboards are part of a three-prong plan to push for the passage of medical marijuana in Florida, according to Platshorn.
