Lawmakers Often Overrule Citizens’ Wishes

Lawmakers Often Overrule Citizens' Wishes

Lawmakers Often Overrule Citizens’ Wishes.

Just because voters approve a ballot measure, that doesn’t always mean that law will actually end up on the books. Florida is an example of that. Voters approved the use of medicinal marijuana. State lawmakers unhappy with that decision tweaked the law. They said medicinal pot can’t be smoked in the state. This summer, Governor Rick Scott signed a constitutional amendment allowing people with some medical conditions to use pot. The latest issue of Stateline takes a look at states such as Florida, where lawmakers refused to adhere to what voters wanted. Scott Greenberger is executive editor of the publication and says there’s been a lot of pushback when it comes to marijuana.

Organizers who pushed the use of medicinal marijuana say they’ll sue because residents aren’t allowed to smoke it or grow their own plants.
