No one really asked Jeb Bush, but it isn't much of a surprise he's not down with medical marijuana.

The former governor, along with the Florida Chamber, the Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida and the Florida Trucking Association, is the latest to join the anti-medical marijuana push.

"Florida leaders and citizens have worked for years to make the Sunshine State a world-class location to start or run a business, a family-friendly destination for tourism and a desirable place to raise a family or retire," Bush said in a released statement. "Allowing large-scale, marijuana operations to take root across Florida, under the guise of using it for medicinal purposes, runs counter to all of these efforts. I believe it is the right of states to decide this issue, and I strongly urge Floridians to vote against Amendment 2 this November."

Granted, 23 states have already legalized medical marijuana. You'd think Bush would cite some evidence coming from those states as to how they've negatively affected business, tourism, raising families and retirements in places like Maine and Minnesota.

Medical marijuana is nothing new in other parts of the country. It's time its detractors use actual facts to defend their position instead of vague concerns about fantasy problems.

Meanwhile, according to the latest polls, 88 percent of Floridians support medical marijuana.

I think the medical Marijuana lobby got smart and figured out that if they paid Jeb to say "don't vote for this" it's sure to pass.

Considering that Papa Bushstain is a former board of directors member of Eli Lilly, this doesn't surprise me, Jeb probably has shitloads of invested stock himself. Eli Lilly manufactures 4 chemo drugs, 7 different anti diabetiic drugs and 3 neurological drugs for ADD, memory loss and schizophrenia. All these drugs can be replaced by Cannabis Therapy. This is most likely why Jeb opposes it. Google "Papa Bush Eli Lilly" and you'll get a lot of hits.

This is why all Bush's are imbeciles. Alcohol is medically proven worse for you then weed. Secondly, show me one report where a person OD'd on weed? Wouldn't it make more sense to allow people to grow a plant in their yard or house, that is hurting no one, then to keep it illegal, make them go into the hood and risk their lives getting something, they should already have access too Let some marijuana growers/sellers form a corporation, start contributing to GOP candidates. You'll see them be all for legalized marijuana in the blink of an eye.Well, that and if you legalize it, you have one less law to enforce in the inner cities while not enforcing it in the suburbs so you can put lots of young black men in jail for several years, taking them out of competition with all the nice white childrenz and even saddling them with a felony that prevents them from voting for years or the rest of their life. Then you can run around yelling "tough on crime" while pretending that's not just your smokescreen for oppressing minorities and maintaining white dominance and privilege.
