Medical Marijuana Debate at Broward College Draws Passions From Both Sides

It was a surprisingly sparse crowd that gathered in the Broward College South campus' Performing Arts Center on Tuesday to watch United For Care's Ben Pollara and Drug Free Florida's Javier Correoso debate Amendment 2 and the legalization of medical marijuana.

Yet, the passions that are being inflamed over this issue were ever present, particularly among the crowd of mostly pro-medical marijuana.

And, as November approaches and the debates resume, it's becoming abundantly clear that medical marijuana is becoming the issue that's rousing passings more than any other this election cycle. Even with a thin crowd at Broward's debate, the fervor over the amendment was tangible.
