Florida Marijuana Legalization Campaign Nears Signature Total Needed For Ballot Access

An industry-backed marijuana reform campaign has so far collected more than 70 percent of the signatures it needs to put a legalization initiative before voters on the 2024 ballot.

The Florida Division of Elections updates petition counts on the measure at the end of each month, and at the close of March the campaign had netted 635,961 valid signatures, a development first noted by News Service Florida.

At the end of January, the measure cleared a major hurdle, getting enough signatures to initiate a state Supreme Court review of the measure’s language. That analysis is still pending.

By the end of February the campaign had crossed the symbolic threshold of 420,000 signatures.

The Florida Supreme Court will be looking to make sure that the text of the proposal doesn’t violate the state Constitution’s single subject rule and isn’t affirmatively misleading to voters. If the court determines that the initiative meets those standards, the campaign will need to collect a total of at least 891,589 signatures to make the ballot next year.

At the current pace of petitioning it seems likely that organizers will meet that signature goal by the end of May, if not by the end of this month.
