THC and pot are big business and plan to get much bigger.

That isn’t an opinion, it is what the pot promoters themselves say – including those who publicly claim they want THC available for reasons of “compassion.”

In fact, the Florida legislature has already acted with compassion by passing the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act 2014 which will make appropriate forms of pot available in September 2016 – responsibly dispensed by trained doctors to minimize the chance that children are accidentally poisoned. That image – doctors providing appropriate medicine to patients in need – is not what Amendment 2 is about.

That begs the question: why is Amendment 2 needed and what would it give us?

The answer, which is often found in the words of the THC promoters themselves, is: big business with big profits. Amendment 2 promises to make THC widely available through nearly 2,000 pot shops (initially) and more than 100,000 independent THC distributors and potential growers.
