The Referendum process has long been part of our Governmental process. It is a vehicle for voters to initiate and vote on an issue, independent from Politicians and Governmental Bureaucracy.
Regarding Legalization of Recreational Marijuana, our Florida Governor and State Legislature have rightfully (in my opinion) opposed the passage of any Legislation. But BEWARE!!! There are well–funded groups in the State that are using the Referendum process to get the issue of Legalizing Recreational Marijuana on the 2020 or 2022 Ballot.
Statewide, this issue represents 100’s of millions of dollars to Big Money backers of this Referendum. Their budget for advertising is limitless. We should and must do something to protect our Community in advance of this inevitability.
We are close to our Referendum requirement to get this issue on the August 2020 Ballot. We ask each and every Registered Voter to fill out and sign the Petition and send it to: brm_pac, PO Box 1310, Marco Island, FL 34146. Or, drop it off at Professional Dry Cleaners in the Hoots Plaza on Elkcam.
