Florida Sheriffs Launch Medical Marijuana Opposition Campaign

The many opponents of legalized marijuana in Florida have come and gone, defeated with facts and science and the power of the people.

But, like a ferocious hungry hydra looking to devour the movement at every turn, opposition continues to rear its long, scaly talons at preventing medical weed from being legalized.

The most recent -- and perhaps biggest -- opposition to date comes in the form of the Florida Sheriffs Association, which has launched a staunch anti-Amendment 2 campaign called "Don't Let Florida Go to Pot."
