AG Pam Bondi won't fight medical marijuana amendment



From our friends at the Associated Press:

TALLAHASSEE — Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, who loudly opposed a medical marijuana measure that appeared on the 2014 ballot, is staying on the sidelines this time around.

Bondi’s office acknowledged Monday that the state’s top legal officer is remaining silent on whether the Supreme Court should block the latest version of the ballot initiative.

The Supreme Court is currently reviewing the proposed amendment ahead of next year’s elections. The court must decide whether the ballot initiative is misleading and whether it complies with single-subject requirements.

Two years ago Bondi contended a similar medical marijuana amendment would allow the use of marijuana in “limitless situations” and that physicians would be allowed to approve pot use for nearly any reason.
