The Manatee County Supervisor of Elections office today reports petitions for legalizing medical marijuana and for funding land and water conservation projects in the state of Florida will appear on the November ballot.
Manatee County's elections office certified 14,746 petitions of 21,595 received regarding medical marijuana. It certified 8,420 of 11,075 petitions received for the Water and Land Conservation Petition.
"My staff has worked hard verifying these two petitions over the last six months," Supervisor of Elections Mike Bennett said.
Both amendments garnered enough support locally, and from each county in Florida to appear on the ballot in November.
