Why Say Yes

This is an incredibly important issue that brings out passions on both sides of the issue. No matter what you think about cannabis, in a free society a responsible adult should not ask the government for permission to treat themselves.

Here is a two-sided PDF you can print at home. Take a look at some of the reasons we believe cannabis should be legal for otherwise responsible adults. If you agree, we need your help! More About the Proposed Amendment

Why a Constitutional Amendment?

The team that created the Floridians for Freedom has worked for over 20 years trying every conceivable way to change the laws; we have waited long enough for incremental changes. After 20 years, we still only have a handful of people who can legally use and possess cannabis; even fewer have gotten the right through the court to cultivate cannabis. This amendment gives responsible adults the same right to cannabis we already enjoy with alcohol. Cannabis medicine for the sickest of the sick isn’t enough. This should be available to patients as a first option, a preventative or for a moment of relaxation for an otherwise responsible adult. Special interest groups like the Florida Sheriff’s Association and Drug-Free America are fighting tooth and nail to prevent lawmakers from making policies that put patients and people first. Once our right is protected constitutionally, it is harder to take it away. An amendment removes all barriers to the plant at once, ensuring the right of all responsible adults to access the plant either as medicine, recreation or for industrial uses are protected.

Why this Constitutional Amendment?

We believe personal liberty for responsible adults is what belongs in the Constitution. We are proposing this amendment to take back our fundamental right to heal ourselves. We believe regulations should be created by our lawmakers, through the legislative process, but lawmakers can’t make sensible policies while cannabis is prohibited. We want otherwise responsible adults to have access to the whole plant. Business protection doesn’t belong in the constitution. If we end prohibition, business will take care of itself. Because an amendment should be simple for people to understand.

What does this Amendment do?

It guarantees the rights of otherwise responsible adults to have, use and grow cannabis on their private property. It provides patients the freedom to choose and the right to use cannabis as a first option in their treatment. Returns the power to make decisions about cannabis to the individual. It authorizes the legislature to create strict rules governing the sale of cannabis.

What this Amendment doesn’t do.

It doesn’t allow criminals to violate voluntary terms of probation or community control. It doesn’t override your right to prohibit workers in your business from using cannabis. It doesn’t allow cannabis to be grown in violation of a lease or contractual agreement. It doesn’t allow anyone under 21 to use, possess, or cultivate cannabis. It doesn’t prohibit lawmakers from passing laws that affect public safety. It doesn’t permit anyone to drive impaired or recklessly. It doesn’t authorize anyone to contribute to the delinquency of a minor.
