FLORIDA: Baby boomers are the group that stands to benefit most from medical marijuana, and their numbers may be key to whether Amendment 2 passes or fails, activists say.
In addition, industry experts say boomers 50 and older will likely drive growth of medical marijuana revenue.
The latest poll released Monday by Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University shows an average 88 percent of Floridians are in favor of legalizing medical marijuana. Election Day is Nov. 4
“The reason they (Floridians) are overwhelmingly in favor is that disease and injury do not pick political affiliation or age,” said Orlando attorney John Morgan, chairman of People United for Medical Marijuana. The group runs the pro-Amendment 2 United for Care Campaign.
