County Being Sued After Omitting Marijuana Measure from Ballots

FL Medical Marijuana

The Florida chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) said that a lawsuit would be filed against the Broward County Commissioner of Elections because Amendment 2, the medical marijuana legalization measure, was not listed on their ballots.

The number of affected ballots in Broward County has not been determined yet, according to CNN.

NORMAL reacted to the issue by saying, “The plaintiffs are seeking a judicial declaration enjoining the defendants from distributing any further ballots, and implementing an emergency plan to issue new ones which insure the inclusion of the proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot.”

Florida nearly passed a medical marijuana ballot initiative in 2014, only failing by a mere 2-percent. Florida requires 60-percent of votes for passage of amendments.
