Okay! So they aren’t exactly calling it quits. Regulate Florida, probably the most notable
organization working to get adult use marijuana on Florida’s 2016 ballot, has abandoned their efforts to
for 2016. However, the group assures the marijuana community of Florida that they will make another,
more organize and better funded, attempt for the 2018 ballot. Stating that it has become apparent that
they will be unable to reach the one million signed petitions needed to get on the 2016 ballot.
For now the group is asking it’s supporters to responsibly discard any of their printed petitions
and pick up some of United for Care’s petition. United for Care is heading an initiative, similar to their
initiative in 2014, to legalize medical marijuana in 2016.
