Amendment 2 not needed; we already have Charlotte’s Web

-A A +A

As time goes by, it appears that Amendment 2 is facing serious opposition from likely voters.

Though the press has loved quoting a flawed Quinnipiac Poll that showed 88 percent of voters were in support, once pollsters began asking the question as it would appear on the ballot, support has dropped significantly to somewhere between 56 percent and 61 percent.

Since 60 percent plus one is needed for passage, the amendment is in trouble because the opposition campaign hasn’t even begun yet and once it does; its support will continue to wane.

But to get to the core of the proponents’ arguments, their message is pretty simple: Medical pot is needed to help the sick and dying.

Though simple and straight-forward, it’s just not true. Medical pot won’t be for just the sick and dying and therein lies the problem that the proponents must face if the amendment has a chance of passage.

The reason is because of the “loopholes” that have been thoroughly discussed by this author and by many others.
