We are a group of individuals supporting People United for Medical Marijuana, the political action committee registered with the Florida Division of Elections. Approval was received on March 26, 2009 to collect signatures on a constitutional amendment petition which would give patients the right to obtain, grow, possess and purchase marijuana for the treatment of illnesses, conditions, or diseases.
We know there is an overwhelming support for this legislation. We are working at a grassroots level to get the word out as fast as we can. In order to get on the 2010 ballot, we need 100,000 signatures by September, and 700,000 valid signatures before February 1, 2010. The signatures we are collecting now are good for four years, so if we don't make this deadline, we will certainly make the 2012 ballot. Nobody wants to wait that long, so let's get moving and get this accomplished ASAP!
