While about 58 percent of the votes were in favor of Amendment 2 in 2014, it failed to meet the requisite 60% minimum for passage. The second time was the charm, as the 2016 version of the initiative received 71% of the vote. There are sixty-seven counties in Florida, which all approved the Amendment by more than 50 percent. Stated another way, 100% of the counties came back and said a majority of their populations wanted medical cannabis to be available. This follows the 2014 election trend where more people voted for Amendment 2 than voted for Governor Rick Scott (R) and Attorney General Pam Bondi (R). What happens next?
