You'd think a place where world travelers flock to lie around on the beach would be in a constant state of paradise-induced relaxation for its residents. Of course, anyone who calls Miami home knows that isn't always the case.

In fact, real estate blog Movoto has ranked Miami the third most stressed-out city in the entire United States.

Florida wants medical marijuana. Days after the state legislature for the first time sent a bill to the governor's desk legalizing some pot -- namely, a low-THC strain used to help children with epilepsy -- a new poll out this morning makes it crystal clear where voters stand on the full legalization of medical marijuana.

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.

Sure, with local tourism breaking records in 2013 maybe we shouldn't be too concerned with what some random list says. Yet the fact that TripAdvisor says places like Branson, Missouri, and Phoenix, Arizona, are better travel destinations than Miami Beach just doesn't sit well with us.

Miami-Dade Is One of the Healthiest Counties in America, Somehow

Categories: Survey Says

Are you 305 till you die? Because that might mean you'll be 305 for a long, long time. According to a new study, Miami-Dade is one of the healthiest counties not only in Florida but also in all of America. It's in the top 10 percent of healthiest counties overall across the United States and the fifth healthiest in Florida. Dade is also by far the healthiest large urban county in the state.

What's odd is that a second segment of the study analyzed indicators of good health, but Miami-Dade received only an average placement there. So somehow we're all living relatively long and healthy lives despite ourselves.

Even the fiercest defender's of Miami-Dade's pride must admit we have our fair share of douchebags. Counterintuitively, a new "analysis" by real estate site Estately claims that of America's 100 biggest cities, not only does the City of Miami proper rank low on the douche spectrum, but Hialeah also is actually one of the ten least douchebag-heavy cities in all of the USA.

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for feature_marijuana2.jpg
Poll numbers about how many Floridians support legalizing medical marijuana seem to be all over the place -- well, except below the 60 percent necessary it would need to pass. A new University of North Florida poll shows that 74 percent of Floridians intend to vote to legalize medicinal pot in November. That's down from 82 percent in a poll from November, but again, unless there's some dramatic shift, all signs continue to point to this thing passing.

Even when they're not unveiling gaudy plans for giant mega-casinos, the gambling industry always has some eyes on Miami as a future point of expansion.

It's no wonder then that a poll paid for by "unnamed gaming interests" has been released today showing that 56 percent of Miamians supposedly approve of the idea of bringing full-service, Las Vegas-style casinos to Miami.
