Shark Tank – by Javier Manjarres
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has taken a hard-line stance against medicinal marijuana here in Florida.
Unlike Senator Marco Rubio, who favors the “noneuphoric strains” of medical marijuana, and other possible 2016 Republican presidential candidates, who support broader medicinal marijuana use, Bush is strongly urging voters in Florida to defeat the marijuana amendment that is on the ballot this coming November.
“Florida leaders and citizens have worked for years to make the Sunshine State a world-class location to start or run a business, a family-friendly destination for tourism and a desirable place to raise a family or retire,” Bush said in a statement.
“Allowing large-scale, marijuana operations to take root across Florida, under the guise of using it for medicinal purposes, runs counter to all of these efforts.
I believe it is the right of states to decide this issue, and I strongly urge Floridians to vote against Amendment 2 this November.”-Miami Herald
In speaking to law enforcement officers on this issue, I found that the overwhelming majority of them do not support the legalization of marijuana.
One particular Sheriff deputy in Palm Beach County told me that driving ‘buzzed’ is the same as driving ‘high.’

Jeb hasn’t been paid enough, like the liquor, tobacco, and pharmaceutical drug companies have.
Great article the other day on fighting cancer with cannabis oil. Link below to website and vid.
Can’t have a safe, effective (cheap) cure for anything, right?
There is an all-out effort to stop cannabis oil – SO IT HAS TO BE EFFECTIVE. The sarcoma patient using it in Missouri(?) who was on trial was NOT allowed to reveal his cancer in court, nor talk to any press, “or you will go to jail”.
He went to jail, anyway. AS DID HIS FAMILY MEMBERS FOR HELPING HIM GROW. I don’t know WHY anyone would remain silent in the face of such tyranny. If he’s already on trial, they want to ‘set an example’.
The “Bush Family Evil Empire” doesn’t want legal marijuana competing with the stuff they import from South America and sell on the streets for billions.
The Bush family is tied at the hip with the CIA ….. and drug trafficking is a large part of that relationship.
This POS is simply doing what all the conservative political machinery in this country does — hide behind conservative values, blame someone else for our problems and work toward dividing and conquering our citizens.
It’s way past time to STOMP on this fubar trash. We need to remove every single Bush family member from our political process.
