WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments on December 5th about whether a proposed constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana should go before voters.

The announcement came two days before supporters and opponents of the measure were to gather at the Lake Worth campus of Palm Beach State College for a 90-minute debate called, "The Great Debate! Marijuana Legalization: Make An Informed Decision."

"It's needed now because there are people who are ill now. They're getting pain killers. They may overdose and die when there is a safer alternative," William Deans, an organizer at Medical Marijuana Petition Palm Beach . "We're going to have 900,000 petitioners before it is said and done with who have signed to indicate that they want this issue on the ballot."

Some groups who have worked to keep drugs away from children said the measure was not in the best interest of the people of Florida.

Have been doing lots of radio ads for medical marijuana. Their gripe is that fl lawmakers (most are baggers) won't let it be up for a vote. Morgan & Morgan supports legalizing medical marijuana. I'd vote in favor of legalization.
