Florida -- Democrat Charlie Crist continued his surge in the polls and the medical marijuana measure received a much-needed shot in the arm in a new survey released today. Crist leads Gov. Rick Scott 43 percent to 38 percent in the University of North Florida poll. Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie receives 10 percent, and 8 percent are undecided.It marks the fourth poll this week that shows Crist leading the incumbent. In the other three, Crist registered small leads of 1, 2 and 2 percentage points. All are within their respective margins of error.
Meanwhile, Amendment 2, the medical marijuana initiative that has been wobbling in the polls, was buoyed by the results. It's leading by a healthy 67 percent to 28 percent with 5 percent undecided.That's well above the needed 60 percent for passage. It also reverses a trend of successive polls showing the measure below the critical 60 percent mark.In the governor's race, The News-Press forecast model finds there's a 56.2 percent probability that Crist will unseat Scott in November. This is slightly better than a coin flip. The model, based on polling data, state fundamentals and historical trends, projects Crist will prevail over Scott 46.8 to 46.3 percent, with Wyllie receiving 6.9 percent.The odds that Amendment 2 will pass in November are a robust 66.9 percent. The model projects the initiative will prevail 61.5 percent to 38.5 percent.The UNF poll questioned 471 likely voters from Sept. 29-Oct. 8 and has a margin of error of +/-4.7 percent.Source: News-Press (FL)Author: Scott BihrPublished: October 9, 2014Copyright: 2014 The News-PressContact: mailbag news-press.comWebsite: Medical Marijuana Archives

I think Scott was bad for Florida and now that Crist is a Democrat I hope he wins.

Cannabis prohibitionists are discriminationists.
Marijuana should be legalized and regulated: CAMH cesspool of cannabis prohibitionists is shrinking.Even (WATCH:) Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair seemed to indicate he’d support the CAMH proposal as long as the proper regulatory measures were implemented-0-Cannabis prohibitionists don't necessarily just discriminate against people who use cannabis. They may discriminate every opportunity that comes along.

Good one in the Washington Post
No, marijuana is not actually “as addictive as heroin” major media outlets are clearing the way for Obama to make the move.
