KNOW YOUR VOTE: Amendment 2

The proposal would expand the use of marijuana in the state for medicinal purposes.

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.
