FSA announces position on SB 528 and core legislative principles surrounding medical marijuana
FSA
The Florida's Sheriffs met at the FSA Winter Conference to discuss critical legislative issues, including medical marijuana, that are facing the state. During the 2014 election, Florida's sheriffs spoke out in opposition to Amendment 2 because they believed the legalization of marijuana did not belong in our state constitution. The ballot language also contained too many loopholes that could not be corrected by legislation.

"Sheriffs are ready to work with the citizens who serve in the Florida Legislature in developing a law that will help those truly in need, while not increasing the supply of marijuana that drives drug addiction and crime," said President David Shoar, Sheriff of St. Johns County.
