Cannabis Stocks - Cannabis Stocks Light Up As Florida Adds Weed to November Ballots

Cannabis stocks are on the move Tuesday after the Florida Supreme Court approved the ability to add recreational marijuana use to the state’s November ballot.

This measure will have residents of Florida voting for or against a new amendment that would allow the use of the drug. The court voted five to two in favor of allowing the amendment to be on the ballot.

Here’s what Justice Jamie Grosshans said about the decision in a statement collected by CBS News:

“Our role is narrow — we assess only whether the amendment conforms to the constitutionally mandated single-subject requirement, whether the ballot summary meets the statutory standard for clarity, and whether the amendment is facially invalid under the federal Constitution. In light of those limited considerations, we approve the proposed amendment for placement on the ballot.”
