Florida Gov. Rick Scott is slated to sign a bill that legalizes a limited strain of medical marijuana known as “Charlotte’s Web” after the bill’s passage in both the Senate and the House.

Additionally, a Quinnipiac University poll released in November says that 82 percent of Florida voters support legalizing medical marijuana, while 16 percent oppose it. Breaking it down by party lines, 87 percent of Democrats support it as did 70 percent of Republicans.

Over the Memorial Day holiday, the Daytona Times asked beachgoers if they support the medical marijuana bill and if its passage is a step in the direction of legalizing marijuana for non-medicinal purposes.

Legalize it. People are going to do it regardless.

Legalize it for everyone. People are already saying that if the government is involved, they can tax it, and then the money can be used for pressing other issues.

If they put it in prospective, people are using it for medical reasons, cataracts, glaucoma. It is already hard to control drugs as it is. People pop more pills now then ever before. If you legalize marijuana, which I don’t use it and don’t condone it, it needs to be controlled.
