Medical marijuana is shaping up to be the topic du jour of the 2014 election season. The Florida Supreme Court has approved a citizens' initiative petition calling for a referendum to legalize use of marijuana for certain medical conditions. The proposed amendment to the Florida Constitution will be on the November 4 ballot. That move comes as the Florida Legislature has held hearings on a proposal to allow limited use of marijuana to treat certain medical conditions. A panel of experts will debate the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana for medical purposes and answer questions from the audience.
