“This is not a partisan issue. Across the political spectrum there is a majority of support,” Suncoast NORML Chapter Executive Director Chris Cano said.
A recent survey by Public Policy Polling, shows 59% of Floridians support legalizing recreational marijuana compared to 31% of people who oppose it. Despite the majority of support, Cano says getting an initiative on the ballot hasn’t been easy.
“Why is there this disconnect between public policy and what people want and it really does boil down to the other forces at work that our representative government have at play,” Cano said.
