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
and genuine researchers My personal comments are only my opinion after reading the information.
: Vote yes on 2, The life you save may be your own.
, “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.”
: Taken from
Overdose deaths 2013 state of Florida, 2,474. Overdose deaths 2014 State of Florida 2,634 increase of 160 deaths.
does not show yet OD Deaths for 2015 to present.
I am sure the number is increasing.
new recommendations released 2016 include the statement to Doctors and Pain Management WE recommend “not to test for delta 9
” 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.”
“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.
holds the only patent on Marijuana.

I am from Florida, and I have been waiting for medical marijuana to be legal in Florida my entire life! I have moved to various states around the country where medical marijuana is legal to learn everything about marijuana. I am currently a caregiver in Maine, and I am proficient in everything cannabis. I have over 10 years of cannabis sales, growing, production, manufacturing, cannabis extraction, and edibles making experience. I know what it takes to open and operate a successful medical marijuana business. I am contacting you today to figure out how I can best position myself for medical marijuana in Florida. I will be moving back to Florida in November to continue pursuing my passion for cannabis. I want to open a Medical Marijuana Treatment Center because being a caregiver just is not enough. I’ve been a caregiver for 2 years in Maine, and without a retail store and access to an unlimited amount of patients, operating is very difficult. I want to bring my skill set, knowledge, and expertise to the Florida Medical Marijuana program. How can I best position myself to receive on of the licenses to operate an
? Can I do anything now? I don’t want to miss out on this great opportunity to bring affordable, high quality medicine to the patients of Florida. Thank you.

I’m interested in finding out if this will allow patients to grow for themselves? I don’t see anyway I can discover this from the information on this site. also, I don’t see any ads, conversation, etc regarding all of the studies by academic institutions and other countries. nor any of the stats from the states that have legalized. why isn’t that kind of informing occurring?
2016-08-27 00:29:15 -0400

That is an
statement which is now being used by the
NO clowns as a very convincing argument that

Today I notice a friend on Facebook re-posting a negative marijuana article from Allen west’s webpage. I am writing a rebuttal because this person lives in Florida. My gripe is that I attempt to find the original ballot language pdf to include in my comment and find it non-existent on your page. Yes I know, you have the language on a webpage, but I read everything with suspicion on the web. There is no way for someone to know that your page is completely true. There is an easy solution which I will be using in my public comment. It is of the utmost importance that voters understand the provisions. Most do not.
I suppose you’ll find it unnecessary, but it is fairly easy to add to the ballot language page.
I already get email updates.

have a Kim Mcray as a representative?
I suspect that anti cannabis propagandists have posted an article in her name, is there such a person?
And if so, did she just post an article in sfltimes.com?
And if so, did she really just say that MM won’t get a person high, no matter how much
is in it?
And if so, why would she say such a thing? MM
get a person high of the
content is high!
Please tell me that she didn’t really say that?!?

To the comment regarding donation from Publix (while I have no proof, and this is merely my opinion), I worked for The Sembler Company for almost 10 years and they are a preferred developer for Publix Supermarkets, so more than likely she was strongly encouraged to make that donation and offered some type of incentive to do so!
