A poll in May found 88 percent of Florida voters supported medical marijuana. A March poll showed support at 74 percent. One from November had support at 82 percent.

Then again it's hard to get more than 50 percent of Floridians to agree on anything and the amendment on November's ballot needs just 60 percent support to pass.

The latest poll from Quinnipiac University shows 88 percent of voters support the idea. A majority of those polled also backed legalizing small amounts of weed for personal use.

A Floridian just being all chill about living in Florida.
To hear the internet tell it, Florida is a bizarre hellscape of human depravity and all sorts of unspeakable evils. Floridians, however, tend to like living in this hellscape, thank you very much. It turns out residents of other states are the ones who want to get the hell out.
