United For Care is gathering signatures on a petition to put medical marijuana on the 2014 Florida ballot. Attorney General Pam Bondi and others are trying to block it.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
