State Lawmakers Sponsor Bill To Make Medical Marijuana Legal

Some state lawmakers are sponsoring a bill that would make medical marijuana legal in Florida. At the state legislative session Thursday at the capitol, lawmakers were joined by people suffering from various diseases.

They’re working together to pass a resolution that could go before voters in 2012.

The sponsor of the bill, Democrat Jeff Clemens says the situation is personal to thousands of Floridians.

“We have a lot people suffering here in the state of Florida. I don’t think we need to be telling them that prescription narcotics are the way to go, when we have other, more natural avenues for them,” he said.

If the bill is approved by lawmakers and voters, supporters claim the sale of medical marijuana could generate $5 million to $12 million a year in tax revenue for the state.
