Per the Facebook Event page:
“If you support a patient’s rights to make their own medical decisions with their doctor, please join us to show your support for Florida Amendment 2 and the legalization of medical marijuana to help suffering people all over our state.
Many patients and their doctors find marijuana to be a useful medicine as part of the treatment for AIDS, cancer, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, dystonia, and other ailments. Yet Florida laws treat all patients currently using medical marijuana as criminals. Doctors are presently allowed to prescribe cocaine and morphine — but not marijuana.
The effort to legalize medical cannabis here in South-West Florida has fallen victim to egregious lies and fear mongering funded by out of state billionaires and big pharmaceutical companies that want to keep the federal government between patients and their right to the safe access for the medicine that they need.
We will rally together on Friday, October 17th to let our friends and neighbors know loud and clear that we stand united for patient’s rights and to encourage every to vote YES on Amendment 2.
We will be having a sign making party the night before the event on October 16th at 6pm. If you can attend, please RSVP here:https://www.facebook.com/events/981099301907039/
