State Can Control Marijuana, Backers Say

Opponents of Amendment 2, which would legalize medical marijuana, have warned it will bring chaos like that in Colorado and California when it became legal in those states, with shops springing up on every corner. But supporters say the ballot measure calls for state control and regulation over such matters as how many medical marijuana dispensaries could open and where they would operate. The Tampa Bay Times reports on the debate.

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.
