In the past election, Amendment 2 would have amended the Florida Constitution to legalize marijuana use for medicinal purposes. While it received 58% of the vote, it failed to reach to 60% needed to pass. However, the push to legalize medical marijuana continues. Flash from Ploppy Palace Productions stopped by the show to talk about the 17th Annual Medical Marijuana Benefit event taking place Saturday, March 14. The event will feature live music, special speakers, and live art demonstrations. There will also be political action activities, including a signature drive for the petition to include a referendum on the 2016 ballot that would legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes. There will be a voter registration drive as well. For more information and to purchase discounted advance tickets, visit www.ploppypalace.com.
