State Supreme Court to hear medical-marijuana arguments


Medical marijuana will be considered by the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday in a hearing that could determine whether voters will decide the proposed state constitutional amendment next November.

Opponents want the court to rule that the proposal does not meet requirements to be on Florida’s ballot. They say the ballot language — limited by law to 90 words — is a misleading summary of the full, six-page amendment. They also argue that the amendment changes more than one government function, while amendments must be limited to “single subjects.”
