Recreational pots initiative surpasses $ 300,000 – CBS Miami



TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami / NSF) – A political committee supporting a constitutional amendment proposal to legalize recreational marijuana use raised $ 307,522 in October, of which $ 250,000 came from medical marijuana company Trulieve, according to a recently filed financial report.

The Sensible Florida, Inc. committee had about $ 314,000 in cash as of Oct. 31, according to the report posted on the state’s Elections Division website.

The committee is proposing a ballot initiative that would allow people 21 or older to grow and use marijuana, with a cap of 18 plants per household.

It would also prevent state lawmakers from trying to limit the percentage of euphoria-inducing THC in marijuana – an issue that has been debated repeatedly by the legislature.

The Supreme Court rejected an earlier Sensible Florida proposal in June, saying in a 5-2 decision that a ballot summary would be misleading for voters.

Sensible Florida would have to submit 891,589 valid petition signatures and get Supreme Court approval before they could present the new version to voters.

The state’s Elections Division website did not show that valid petition signatures were submitted on Tuesday afternoon.
