Introduction

Hey, I'm Hunter! Somewhat new to Florida, decided to try and find ways of connecting to other people and so here I am. I am certainly passionate about activism in general, particularly for and at a time when this issue is in the spot light.

What makes you passionate about getting medical marijuana legal?

I have always been in favor of legalization and seen first hand how it has helped friends (and family) of mine, particularly those with very serious medical or mental disorders. I also very strongly feel in favor of marijuana in general as it is pretty laughably and easily less dangerous than other legal substances (IE alcohol, even over the counter meds). The ridiculous crime rate and those jailed/lives ruined because of it is also a very serious issue that I, again, have seen first hand. No one should have their lives ruined for lighting up a joint. Best place to start for recreational legalization though, imo, is right here at the heart of medical. Get exposure to the world, a better understanding of it, and move in the right direction. I feel that currently, in this time and age, things are going in this direction like a ripple affect across the world and that now is the time to act. Hopefully we can all open up our textbooks and get out of this crazy D.A.R.E war on drugs mentality
