A majority of Florida voters support legalization of recreational marijuana, a new poll says. According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday, 55 percent of Florida voters back legal possession of small amounts of recreational pot, compared with 41 percent who oppose it.

Haven't heard ANYTHING about the same organization's poll about Obama in Florida. Nope, the Florida media stays far, far away from negative news about their man child hero.
Exactly what the left wants, a drugged and even more dumbed-down populace which is highly malleable to the machinations of a corrupt, fascistic government.
An army of stumblebums and apathetic stoners is no army at all.
But to some, personal initiative is the biggest threat they can imagine. They may be right.
America is in decline. This is part of that decline.
Funny, America was ascending just fine during the days when there were no pot laws.
They shouldn’t be all amendments in Florida need 60 pct
But we had a totally different culture back then. People actually wanted to grow up and be responsible adults. Kids couldn’t wait. Now everybody (not quite everybody) wants to be a perpetual frat boy, rock musician, adolescent. It used to be respectable to be sane.
The world and the nation are crashing around them, but dammit, FL voters have their priorities. Reality be damned.. we want our POT!
“Funny, America was ascending just fine during the days when there were no pot laws.”
During that time, stoners were not part of a political movement that attached itself for support to the people who went out and busted their a@#es for survival. If you didn’t work, you didn’t eat and the only intellectuals were those who went out and made discoveries and innovated through hard intellectual exertion. (If anyone tried to lay claim to the results of anyone else’s efforts, they were not met with hospitality.)
Here’s the deal. I would hire a doper, and I don’t want a doper flying my plane or operating on my mom or representing my cousin in court.
That said, I have had it up to here with police frittering away their time with a “safe” arrest of some idiot high school student for pot, ruining his life and making the cop’s life cushy because he gets credit for an arrest without taking ay risks arresting a legitimate bad guy, like a batterer or a murderer or a child molester.
I feel relatively safe from attacks by dopers.
I mean I wouldn’t hire a doper
It’s not the laws I’m referring to, it’s the level of pot use.
The decline isn’t the legalization per se, it’s the desire on the part of so many people to use a substance that makes them stupider.
We are entering a Brave New World, one that does not include an overly-informed electorate.
Not to defend pot heads, but hasn't this been so forever with alcoholics?
There’s a slim possibility that the stupidest and least informed among us will now totally lose the incentive to vote at all.
1+1=2 (not 1)
Also, pot is much more beguiling to the young than alcohol is... And much, much more devastating.
Pot murders learning.
There is a very good reason to legalize drugs. It has to do with police using hand grenades to blow up sleeping babies in cribs. That is what the war on drugs has turned us into. So uninformed “conservatives” can feel safe while being less safe.
I'd like to see the billions of dollars wasted on creating a police state either returned to the taxpayers or spent in better ways.
I'd like to see the drug cartels & the drug dealers lose their source of income & their motivation to murder for profit.
I'd like to see people with real drug & alcohol problems get real help from real health professionals who are not subsidized by the government to perpetuate addiction & abuse; & leave responsible citizens to their privacy.
Do YOU think the government has the right to dictate what we may or may not consume?

Aha, from a reliably objective operation...
