• Poll: Majority of Floridians support amendment to legalize medical marijuana



    Two-thirds of Florida voters support a proposed constitutional amendment that would broadly legalize medical marijuana, according to a Florida Atlantic University poll released Wednesday.

    The poll said 67 percent of voters support Amendment 2 on the Nov. 8 ballot, while about 30 percent oppose it. That would be enough support to top a 60 percent threshold for approving constitutional amendments.

    A similar ballot proposal failed in 2014, when it received about 58 percent of the vote.

    The poll of 500 likely voters was conducted from Friday to Sunday and has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
