Jeb Bush Opposed Florida Medical Marijuana Measure

It comes as little surprise that fomer Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is urging Floridians "to vote against Amendment 2" in November.

Former two-term Florida governor and Bush family scion Jeb sided with the No on Amendment 2 forces in his home state.

Jeb Bush: 'Florida leaders and citizens have worked for years to make the Sunshine State a world-class location to start or run a business, a family-friendly destination for tourism and a desirable place to raise a family or retire. Allowing large-scale marijuana operations to take root across Florida, under the guise of using it for medicinal purposes, runs counter to all of these efforts. I believe it is the right of states to decide this issue, and I strongly urge Floridians to vote against Amendment 2 this November.'

Amendment 2 would've legalize medical marijuana in Florida. It lost, despite receivng 58% of the vote. Amendments requuire 60% to pass in Florida.

Jeb Bush was the Sunshine State's gov from 1999-2006 and is the younger brother of 43rd president George W. Bush and son of 41st president George Bush. Jeb Bush has admitted to smoked pot while he attended college.
