Tallahassee, Fla. – The Vote No on 2 Campaign today highlighted the recent poll that reported that 70 percent of Florida voters support a medical marijuana ballot initiative and shows an overall drop in support for Amendment 2.
“When the Quinnipiac University poll that showed 88 percent of Florida voters supporting adults legally using medical marijuana for medical purposes came out, the supporters of Amendment 2 latched onto it,” said Sarah Bascom, spokesperson for the Vote No on 2 Campaign. “And now, they have latched onto a new poll that shows that 70 percent of Florida voters support a constitutional amendment for medical marijuana.”
“Unfortunately, everyone has seemed to miss the real headline of the week – support for Amendment 2 has dropped a whopping 18 percent – showing that the efforts of the Vote No on 2 Campaign have already started to take hold,” said Bascom. “Where are the news reports about Amendment 2 dropping 18 points? The backers of Amendment 2 cannot have it both ways. They cannot trumpet 88 percent for weeks and then not admit that a drop of 18 percent is a significant shift.”
The Vote No on 2 Campaign is a grassroots campaign, bringing the truth about Amendment 2 to the voters of Florida. Its coalition includes members of law enforcement, business leaders, constitutional law attorneys, doctors and other medical professionals, parents and Floridians from all walks of life. Amendment 2 is simply a guise to legalize pot smoking in Florida and the goal of this campaign is to point out the loopholes and explain why this Amendment is bad for Florida.
