United for Care Answers Anti-Medical Marijuana Group's Claims

Medical marijuana advocates United For Care have come out and answered the various claims made in an eight-minute anti-medical weed ad that was recently released.

Last month, we told you about Drug Free Florida's anti-medical marijuana video called "Devil In the Details," that breaks down reasons why passing Amendment 2 in November would lead to chaos in the streets of Florida.

The video claims that Amendment 2 is fraught with legal loopholes and language that would allow pot to be smoked and sold on the streets without interference from the law, and that it would lead to the eventual full-on legalization of weed in the state.

"A vote for Amendment 2," Florida Sheriffs Association president Sheriff Grady Judd says in the video, "is a vote for legalizing marijuana forever in the state of Florida."
