Ashley Moody Joins Forces with Gov. DeSantis to Block Marijuana in Florida
Florida's Attorney General, Ashley Moody, opposes the legalization of marijuana in the state. She believes the ballot language is misleading and lacks clear information.
Moody is concerned about the federal illegality of marijuana and disputes the notion of increased competition and lower prices. She also worries about the Department of Health's ability to regulate the drug adequately.
If legalization proceeds and Governor Ron DeSantis runs for president, both marijuana and DeSantis could be on the ballot. The proposal allows recreational use of marijuana for adults and has support from Truelieve, but faces opposition from groups like the Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Drug Free America Foundation.
DeSantis' stance on marijuana has been inconsistent despite his recent statement against its legalization.
