Florida Supreme Court approves medical marijuana measure to appear on state November ballot

January 27, 2014 - 12:04 PM

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A Florida measure that would allow the use of medical marijuana has cleared its final hurdle and will be on the November ballot.

The state Supreme Court on Monday approved the language for the proposed constitutional amendment.

The justices gave its approval by a 4-3 vote just three days after a petition drive reached the required number of signatures to place the measure on the ballot.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott is opposed to medical marijuana. His Democratic Party challengers for the governorship, state Sen. Nan Rich and former Gov. Charlie Crist, both support it.
