TAMPA, FL -- Believing it’ll pass, groups supporting medical marijuana joined together Saturday to talk about what happens if Florida voters approve Amendment 2.

The Florida Cannabis Coalition hosted their final industry networking event before Tuesday’s vote on it.

They featured business leaders and attorneys, answering questions about what’s next if marijuana becomes legal.

“The health department will have about six months to implement regulations and depending on those regulations, dispensaries open within about a year to a year and a half,” said Peter Sessa with the Florida Cannabis Coalition.

Meanwhile, groups hoping Amendment 2 fails protested in Clearwater Saturday morning. They say it’s an effort to trick voters by appealing to their compassion. They believe passing it could cause edible weed to get into kid's hands.
