3. Florida's pain pill mills will become pot mills.
"What we worry about in Florida is that the infamous pill mills will become pot mills. It's going to be a similar problem with marijuana instead of prescription drugs. And today's marijuana is not your marijuana of the '60s -- it's ten to 30 times stronger, often concocted by combusting butane and often consumed in cookies, brownies... and they are marketed to kids.
2. Medical professionals did not craft the petition.
"What we are really worried about is creating the next tobacco industry, except this time it would be the marijuana industry. There is a right way to do marijuana as medicine, but, not surprisingly, the way it is written by a trial lawyer and Democratic pollster is not the right way. We need it done by doctors and public health officials. And that would be in the context of a pharmacy, and that's not what this initiative is about at all."
