No On 2: Right Wing Propaganda

AD CLAIM
“It’s not about compassion; it just legalizes pot smoking.”
----------
VERDICT:  FALSE
Amendment 2 explicitly states:  “Nothing in this section authorizes the use of medical marijuana by anyone other than a qualifying patient.”  Moreover it states: "Nothing in this section shall affect laws relating to non-medical use, possession, production or sale of marijuana.”
----------
AD CLAIM
“…Not just for serious diseases…”
----------
VERDICT:  FALSE
In a ruling handed down on January 27th, 2014, the Florida Supreme Court affirmed that the scope of Amendment 2 was unequivocal: only patients with debilitating diseases and conditions would be allowed to have access to medical marijuana under Amendment 2, including those suffering from cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and Lou Gehrig’s disease among others.
----------
AD CLAIM
“How do they know it’s safe?  They don’t.”
----------
VERDICT:  FALSE
In 1988 Drug Enforcement Agency Administrative Law Judge Francis Young said, “marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within the supervised routine of medical care.”  There isn’t a single instance of an overdose death caused by marijuana. Marijuana is safer than many medicines commonly found in our cabinets like Advil and Tylenol, which cause 12,000 deaths per year in the United States.
----------
AD CLAIM
“Kids can legally get it without their parents’ permission.” “No parental control.”
----------
VERDICT:  FALSE
As Politifact stated in its May 20, 2014 fact check on this topic, Florida minors would not be able to get a recommendation for medical marijuana from a physician because, “currently, a parent or guardian must provide consent for medical treatment for a minor, except in emergencies or other unusual circumstances, such as when the Department of Children and Family Services must get involved.”

Looking for Rick Scott today?

You won't find him where a judge ordered him to be: In Tallahassee, giving a deposition on the secret email accounts he illegally used to conduct state business. Instead, Scott is holding a massive fundraiser in Miami. I was going to suggest you send him an email to his private address -- gov.rls@gmail.com 
to try and reach him. But alas, 
 you'll just get an error message.

DINO Bob Buckhorn No Fan Of Amendment 2

 Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn believes the legalization of medical marijuana is a “slippery slope,” and is no fan of Amendment 2 here

“There are alternatives for people who are in that type of pain, It’s hard for me to explain 
why I would legitimize what is a drug.”
Mayor Bob, I think the alternatives are called drugs. You need to take your head out of your right wing ass and listen to the experts. 

"Modern Science has proven the medical uses of marijuana, yet so many politicians ignore the studies and instead listen to those with money and power. And of course those with money and power have a lot to lose if medical marijuana passes."
Amos Miers
