Just two years ago, Florida put medical marijuana on the ballot and lost by majority. Today, voters are gearing up to try it again and many are hopeful that it will pass.
For one mom in Florida, the push toward marijuana legalization comes from her sons need for the drug after being diagnosed with a rare disease at age 8. Now a teenager, he suffers from daily seizures and marijuana is said to be the only drug since diagnosed that has completely removed his seizures and improved his quality of life.
The number of reasons that people are pushing for legalization varies greatly, but one thing stands certain- they want this bill to pass as soon as possible.
