ST PETERSBURG — Simply put, Amendment 2 is all about marijuana.
If you vote 'yes', you will expand the medical marijuana laws already in place.
A 'yes' vote legalizes medical marijuana with THC - the compound that makes you high - to people with 10 specific illnesses including cancer, HIV, AIDS, PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s or a disease that impacts a person to the same level as one of those.
Under current laws, you can't go to a doctor, complain of a headache, and get pot.
The state just started its first deliveries of low-THC medical marijuana through the Charlotte’s Web program already in place.
A 'yes' vote will likely lead to an increase in medical marijuana dispensaries statewide.
A 'no' vote opposes expanding legalized medical marijuana and keeps the current program as is.
