Medical Marijuana Supporters: Enough Signatures Collected for Ballot Initiative

Medical marijuana supporters say they have collected enough signatures to make the 2014 ballot in Florida. 

The group pushing the constitutional amendment announced Wednesday it has collected more than 1.1 million signatures.  It takes nearly 700,000 signatures from registered voters in order to qualify for the ballot. So far election supervisors have certified nearly 458,000 signatures. 

Attorney General Pam Bondi has called the amendment misleading and wants the court to reject it.  If it gets on the ballot, the amendment would need a yes vote from 60 percent of the voters in order to pass.
