Discussed is a huge change.

Especially for the state of florida.

The state supreme court has okayed the inclusion of a medical marijuana initiative in the bowfebruary ballot.

There has been a huge infusion of money to get the signatures on board.

There is also a governor's race in florida.

Charlie crist supports this initiative, the republican incumbent does not.

This has become very big on the national scene as of late.

Going in part due to recreational use in colorado passing.

What are the applications?

-- implications?

They're looking at florida as a test case.

They also have medical marijuana legal in 20 states, but florida is the southern test case e/ . as national acceptance of this has gone about 50% so far this year, they think they can reach that 60% threshold that they need, and it will be a big win that they could take to washington as they push on the federal level.

Trying to get some kind of enteral rules and regulations as they legalize this even more so.

This is a test case for the south, in theory this issue plays everly bear than in the u.s. west.

That is very true, i think the polls show that out.

People were laughing on this
