  • I am a PharmD and firmly stand behind Amendment 2, vote YES! Medical marijuana has been shown to be effective in studies that have been conducted and published on the NCBI website. They conclude in every study since this is a schedule 1 drug no further studies can be conducted. I agree this is a power play by Big Pharma.

    -As a pharmacist I can say I will never want to be part of a pot shop. Why? Because that’s not my training and I can honestly say it’s not my science. Yes marijuana is a science , the strains and THC:CBD ratios need to be handled by professional growers. I fully support your campaign and will volunteer to help in anyway!

    I am also a breast cancer patient and I will honestly say I’ve considered going to Colorado many times for CBD oil because I firmly believe that it will kill breast cancer cells without the side effects of chemo.

    Thank you

  • Where are all the TV ads pointing out how misleading the vote no ads are???? I have been only seeing TV ads about voting no on this and they are so misleading it is absurd but do I see any ads disputing the claims? NO! Where did all the money go that we have donated to seeing ads go up to vote yes on this? I hear some ads on radio but NOTHING on Brighthouse TV here in Palm Bay, Florida Let’s get the word out to vote YES! Regards Steve
  • I have donated 5 times to help you but I don’t see you countering the TV add from Drug Free Florida Committee that is using legalized recreational marijuana products to deceive the voters! Why aren’t you stopping them with a court order injunction? And why aren’t you broadcasting how they are lying to the voters immediately after their advertisement is broadcasted? I am really disturbed with your complete silence!
  • I would like to suggest how to use your tv advertising budget if I may, consider using a 1 second ‘Vote Yes On 2’ aired multiple times, even if you think you didn’t get it, it will if aired multiple times stick in the subconscious mind. It can be a static or scrolling across the screen but it has to be within 1 second. You could run this on multiple stations multiple times a day or night for the same costs as a 20-30 second ad.
  • This one is for Sheldon. I understand why he’s against Amendment 2 because of his child overdosing. Obviously he hasn’t been informed of these statistics that are publicly available, and summarized in my video.

    My son almost died of an opiate overdose last year. Please watch when you have 3 minutes and please share if your content allows.

    I would much rather have Marijuana be more available than opiates for people with pain. Why is everyone so angry that’s obviously voting “No?”

    Thank you.
  • if you think the “feel sorry” commercials are going to work this time, think again! You need better commercials refuting the LIES being told by the opposition. I already donated but feel like you are wasting my money as the one commercial on tv is NOT EFFECTIVE. Didn’t you learn from the first time?
  • Where can I get yard signs? I live in west palm beach fl area
  • WHY NO DATES ON “NEWSPOSTS. Or responses—or anywhere? How are we supposed to know if this is happening now or a month ago—or even 4 years ago. It’s scaring me that we will lose again NOW—my mail in ballot (I can’t walk) came in yesterday. I’m seeing kids on TV holding MMJ infused jelly bears. Where IS United for “care?” The event calendar for the month before the vote is blank? WTF??? TV says a huge donation came in this month—you say you’ve filmed commercials. WHERE ARE THEY?
  • I was wondering if you had a flyer you could email me so I could print it out to hand out to people with the benefits of medical cannabis?
  • would like very much to get some Yes On 2 signes
  • I was attending the medical marijuana of Tampa school and now seems access to it is gone. Do you have any info on that?
  • ive been chronically ill since a very young child and diagnosed with many chronic illness’s throughout my life, that cause me a great deal of DAILY excruciating PAIN, anxiety, stress and just general poor quality of life.. many of my issues can be treated with medical MJ i myself have never had the option to even try it as i am already treated so horribly medically for being so young the constant treatment ive faced since my teens- NOW at 27 years old is horrible .. basically we are addicts until proven ILL.. nurses in the ER here what i take everyday and of course before seeing the real emergency when tests come back they treat me like im just a liar looking for drugs..its horrible so no doubt im terrified to even try this stuff for the fact of how bad id be treated if it came up on my tests.. its such a shame bc id benifit from it so very much. unfortunately people like RICK SCOTT will tell you all other wise and make it nearly impossible for our majority republican state to approve this. its for me and many other heartbreaking.. as all we want is just some relief. relief from intestinal cramping, nausea and poor appetite. relief from chronic widespread pain without making me feel like i have a hangover. relief from the stress on our adrenal glands from being so ill, and our body just wearing down its ability to cope.. PLEASE VOTE YOUR VOTE DOES COUNT. #YesOn2 #fibromyalgia #lupus #ptsd

    i left this comment on you facebook page today, and it sums up such a small bread crumb to what i have experienced with being ill and our healthcare system.. especially the horrible pain management program i’m forced to take part in.. ive tried everything out there and had no relief that wasn’t met by life altering side effects from the drugs prescribed to me. I’d love to share my story and contribute in any way i can i had contacted you last time you ran this campaign and i had a reply but i was hospitalized a lot that year and wasn’t able to get back in time. i know its late in the game but i also know you need as many people who are ill to tell their stories in my opinion as u can get.IM a open book. i feel that no one cares or wants to understand the ILL until they themselves are faced directly in the face with the horrors of being unwell and how society treats you, basically like your an alien and it also just cant be all that bad as you say.. i feel it would get people to understand better especially coming from my age bracket to my own generation. if i can at all help in any way by spreading the word please let me know, and if you’d like to know more about what i have and what i take now because i cant try medical marijuana and what that means for my the rest of the details id be happy to share. i just so badly want this to pass its so unfair that we cant even be given an option to try something that i truly believe as my dr’s for years have said would help me greatly and so many others to improve our quality of life and end suffering that is so unnecessary.

  • Hi,

    I am an entrepreneur/investor in the medical marijuana space. Could you please call me or refer me to someone who can answer questions about Florida’s ballot measure and how it will likely be regulated?

  • I live right by voting place. Want some signs to put word out in Titusville. I plan on being there all morning to educate people why they should vote yes
  • The banks are the enemy of all free people, they own everything, no matter what you want you need a loan from them. I will not allow banks to be involved in my political activism If you ad Bitcoin or another crypto-currency as a payment method as a payment option I will donate anonymously.
  • Our opposition tv ad is a total fabrication. A total lie! I have supported United for care from the start. Yes at age 74 I am pushing hard to help with all the cash I can spare. I am one of thousands of older floridians with health issues that need cannabis treatment because it works!! God help us if 2 fails!

  • A little about me; Homer T Salisbury, I suffer from serious spinal degeneration along with anxiety (I will allow you access to my private medical records) The problem in our state is many faceted but the one that needs addressing the most in my opinion is the lack of access to safe Medical marijuana. At this time people in Dire need have only one choice and that is to break the law and try to get it on the Black market. Other than the obvious result of doing this (arrest, go to jail) What is found on the street is not usually the best choice for a person in need. Believe me I know I am one of them. Florida citizens need the right to “safe access to Marijuana” I am also willing to go public with my story with the full knowledge I may face arrest.
    I also believe that, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ― Edmund Burke.

    (Rough draft of the article I am writing)

    I am not connected with any organization, I just do not want to die of a drug overdose.
    I have tried my best to show only facts I found in reputable News Articles, the CDC and genuine researchers My personal comments are only my opinion after reading the information.

    GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT PEOPLE: Vote yes on 2, The life you save may be your own.

    From the CDC, “rate of death involving natural and semi synthetic opioid pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids, other than methadone (e.g., fentanyl) increased 9%, 26%, and 80%, respectively. The sharp increase in deaths involving synthetic opioids, other than methadone, in 2014 coincided with law enforcement reports of increased availability of illicitly manufactured fentanyl, a synthetic opioid; however, illicitly manufactured fentanyl cannot be distinguished from prescription fentanyl in death certificate data. These findings indicate that the opioid overdose epidemic is worsening. There is a need for continued action to prevent opioid abuse, dependence, and death.”

    FACTS not FICTION: Taken from CDC figures
    Overdose deaths 2013 state of Florida, 2,474. Overdose deaths 2014 State of Florida 2,634 increase of 160 deaths.
    NOTE: CDC does not show yet OD Deaths for 2015 to present.
    I am sure the number is increasing.

    CDC new recommendations released 2016 include the statement to Doctors and Pain Management WE recommend “not to test for delta 9 THC” as there is no proof that it causes adverse side effects when used with any prescription drug. “Clinicians should not dismiss patients from care based on a urine drug test result because this could constitute patient abandonment and could have adverse consequences for patient safety, potentially including the patient obtaining opioids from alternative sources and the clinician missing opportunities to facilitate treatment for substance use disorder.”

    Newsweek 2014:

    “America has a major problem with prescription pain medications like Vicodin and OxyContin. Overdose deaths from these pharmaceutical opioids have approximately tripled since 1991, and every day 46 people die of such overdoses in the United States. However, in the 13 states that passed laws allowing for the use of medical marijuana between 1999 and 2010, 25 percent fewer people die from opioid overdoses annually. “The difference is quite striking,” said study co-author Colleen Barry, a health policy researcher at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore. The shift showed up quite quickly and become visible the year after medical marijuana was accepted in each state, she told Newsweek.”

    New York Times 2016;

    “ U.S. states that have legalized cannabis use for medical purposes have seen a significant decline in the number of prescription drugs issued through the Medicare program, according to a new study by University of Georgia researchers. The study, led by W. David Bradford and published in the journal Health Affairs, examined 87 million prescribed drugs filled by Medicare Part D enrollees from 2010 through 2013. Savings from the lower number of prescriptions were estimated to be $165.2 million in 2013, when 17 states and the District of Columbia had medical marijuana laws implemented. The researchers state that if medicinal marijuana was legal in all 50 states, savings to Medicare would be about $468 million. But they also acknowledge that patients may not benefit from those savings if they pay for medical marijuana out of pocket, noting insurance doesn’t cover it. The study analysis focused on drugs that treat conditions for which medical marijuana could be suggested as an alternative treatment method–such as depression, anxiety, nausea, chronic pain, sleep disorders, glaucoma, spasticity and more. With the exception of glaucoma and spasticity (a muscle control disorder), all other conditions listed correlated with fewer prescriptions in states with legalized medical marijuana. In states where medical marijuana had not been legalized, the same decline was not observed. Overall, glaucoma cases show the least proven benefit from cannabis use, which may correlate with the minimal decline noted in the study. Cannabis use can relieves eye pressure in glaucoma patients by about 25 percent, but the effects only last for about an hour – making the drug not the ideal option for patients. On the opposite side, pain showed the strongest medical evidence recommending marijuana use, according to the researchers, which in turn was the condition that had the greatest effect on prescriptions for painkillers. More than 1,800 fewer daily doses of painkillers were prescribed, on average, per year in states with legal medical marijuana compared to states where it is illegal”.

    Floridians have the opportunity to help stop up to or more than 25% (5,158+ deaths by 2014 figures) of drug overdose deaths by passing Proposition 2 this November. Remember Florida who is funding the " NO ON 2 Campaign."
    Drug Company’s, Prisons, big alcohol and Politicians taking their money to keep Marijuana Illegal. P.S. GOD holds the only patent on Marijuana.
