Kevin Sabet is not one of the more than 70 percent of Floridians who want Amendment 2 to pass in November.
Sabet -- director of the drug policy institute at the University of Florida and a professor at the college of medicine there too -- is one of the few experts who's been outspoken in opposition to the medical marijuana movement. Originally from California, he witnessed the effects of legalization there and claims it's one of the reasons he's so passionately against medical marijuana. He's worked in the Obama, Bush, and Clinton administrations, so he insists that he comes at the issue with a nonpartisan point of view. He's cofounder and director of Smarter Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) and works closely with Patrick Kennedy on the left and David Frum (former speechwriter for George W. Bush) on the right.
Sabet spoke up to explain his side of the medical marijuana debate.
