Sanibel Medical Marijuana Policy To Be Discussed At Tuesday’s City Council Meeting.
The Sanibel City Council will begin very preliminary discussions of the implications for Sanibel medical marijuana policy if the Florida Medical Marijuana Amendment is approved in statewide voting this Tuesday.
Current polling indicates that the amendment might come close to being approved, but it is unclear if it will get the 60% vote of the electorate needed to become law.
“Under Amendment 2, doctors would certify that patients with debilitating conditions could benefit from marijuana. Licensed dispensaries would sell it.
Recent polling on the amendment has been mixed. A poll commissioned by the Tampa Bay Times and other media partners this week put medical marijuana approval at only 46 percent. SurveyUSA, a national robo-calling firm, reported support this month in the 51 to 52 percent range.
But a University of North Florida poll taken a few weeks ago measured 67 percent approval …” Tampa Bay Times, October 31.
Ken Cuyler, City Attorney, drafted a memo providing background and an overview of the Florida Medical Marijuana Amendment for the City Council.
