Could Florida recreational marijuana be legalized?

YES.     State lawmakers introduced a bill in the 2017 General Assembly to hold a statewide referendum on whether to legalize recreational marijuana use while regulating and taxing it. Two proposed Florida amendments have neither been able to generate enough backing to get on the ballot. An amendment would need at least 60% of voters to pass. Despite these failures, attempts to legalize recreational marijuana in Florida are ongoing. With a clear momentum in favor of more comprehensive public acceptance of ‘all issues cannabis,’ and growing recognition by state legislatures seeing significant revenue from marijuana sales, a brighter future for Florida recreational use seems a fait accompli.
