The Team

Our Mission is Monumental

Everyone involved with Floridians for Freedom is passionate about bringing justice to Florida. We have seen the illogical way cannabis prohibition continues to grow and flourish. We have seen the impact of prohibition enforcement on communities and the impact it has had on our own families. We are doing this because in a free society, an otherwise responsible adult should not need permission to use a plant.

We believe that the value of cannabis for health, for food, for fiber, for its pharmacological value and for fun is greater that any perceived threat to society. We know otherwise responsible adults can be trusted with cannabis. Our commitment to ending cannabis prohibition is matched by our belief this petition is the right answer for our state.
