FLORIDA  -  In November, Florida voters will decide on an amendment that would allow medical marijuana in the state.

It would open the doors to treat a variety of health problems with the drug.
A grass roots campaign held a meeting last night in Crestview to discuss the pros and cons.
  
Those who came shared personal stories about how medicinal marijuana has helped family or friends.
  
They also talked about ways to get a heavily conservative area to listen to their side of the story.
Matthew Cunningham "There's a lot of sick people. It doesn't matter if you're on the right side or the left side. All people get sick with cancer and diseases."

This comprehensive amendment is separate from the "Charlotte's Web" bill.
It would allow a non-hallucinagenic form of marijuana to be used for specific health conditions.
  
That bill has passed the state house and is waiting on a vote in the senate.In November, Floridians will vote for or against medical marijuana
