The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments Nov. 8 about a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow recreational use of marijuana by people 21 and older.
The Smart & Safe Florida political committee, which is leading the initiative, needs the Supreme Court to sign off on the ballot wording before the measure can go before voters in November 2024.
Attorney General Ashley Moody opposes the proposal.
The Supreme Court reviews ballot initiatives to make sure that they will not confuse voters and that they address single subjects.
Smart & Safe Florida has submitted enough valid petition signatures to get on the ballot. The committee is backed by Trulieve, the state’s largest medical marijuana operator.
