Medical Marijuana Has Enough Signatures For Florida Ballot

AP

An amendment legalizing medical marijuana in the state of Florida has reached the required amount of signatures to appear on the November ballot, the Tampa Tribune reported Friday.

Election supervisors have certified 710,508 out of the 683,149 signatures needed to appear on the ballot. The measure is slated to move forward as soon as the state supreme court approves its language.

Attorney General Pam Bondi has challenged its language as “unclear and misleading,” according to the Tribune, and a court decision is expected later this spring.
