Florida takes the next step towards legalization

Michael Minardi, an attorney serving Palm Beach County, has joined forces with Bill Wohlsifer and Karen Goldstein to legalize recreational marijuana in Florida, according to an article published in New Times Broward-Palm Beach.

The political committee, Sensible Florida Inc., drafted an amendment that would allow adults 21 and older to buy or posses an ounce or less of marijuana. The “Florida Cannabis Act” needs more signatures to qualify for the ballot, but if passed would also allow those who are licensed to grow up to six plants.

“Realistically, it gives adults the choice to use cannabis for whatever and whenever they want,” Minardi said in an interview with New Times. “It doesn’t allow for driving while on cannabis; it limits the age to 21 — much like the way alcohol is sold and regulated. It creates a licenses-regulated system of distribution to make sure we have the safety of the products and safety for consumers as a priority, much like they do in Colorado. Whenever any kind of product is regulated, it makes sure people are getting a safe product.”
