Marijuana advocacy group Sensible Florida created the ’’Regulate Florida’’ campaign to support the 2016 version of the measure, Florida Cannabis Act #16-02 which may appear on the ballot in Florida in 2020 as an initiated constitutional amendment that will include, among other things, legalizing the recreational use of cannabis and growing your own cannabis plants, with limiting quantities.
“Regulate Marijuana in a Manner Similar to Alcohol to Establish Age, Licensing, and Other Restrictions” is the full name of the ballot initiative.
The amendment would legalize possession of up to one ounce of marijuana by residents at least 21 years old. Residents would also be allowed to cultivate up to six plants per household, but only three or fewer plants could be mature or flowering. The plants would need to be grown in “an enclosed, locked space,” and users would not be permitted to sell the plants they grow.
Without your help in signing this petition, an estimated 400,000 patients in Florida, including children, will continue to suffer at the hands of corrupt politicians and state regulators by keeping this medicine from being accessed by all who need it to ease their pain and suffering.
The petition needs over 700k petitions to qualify to be considered to be on the 2020 ballot. This is why it’s so important for everyone who is a Cannabis Warrior to help in this much-needed effort.
The proposed ballot summary is as follows:
BALLOT SUMMARY: Regulates marijuana (hereinafter “cannabis”) for limited use and growing by persons twenty-one years of age or older. State shall adopt regulations to issue, renew, suspend, and revoke licenses for cannabis cultivation, product manufacturing, testing and retail facilities. Local governments may regulate facilities’ time, place and manner and, if state fails to timely act, may license facilities. Does not affect compassionate use of low-THC cannabis, nor immunize federal law violations.

You are encouraged to print as many petitions as you can, either by your own, or with a group of friends or acquaintances, gather signatures at shopping malls, grocery storefronts, large retailers like Walmart, Target and other places that have a high volume of people like concerts, parties, and other events.
By helping in this worthwhile endeavor, you will potentially be helping over 400,000 sick patients who are living with the challenges of their illness every single day in Florida, who will absolutely benefit from the use of this miraculous plant – let compassion and empathy for patients rule and reclaim the right to have what the creator gave to us all!
