In Florida, Scott and Bondi Still Hold Modest Lead, while medical marijuana amendment receives 50% approval.

Human Events-Gravis Marketing conducted a random survey of 1232 registered voters in Florida by automated calls to landlines a between and 6/21/14 and 6/23/14 regarding support for the proposed Constitutional Amendment legalizing medical marijuana on the set for the November 2014 ballot and the upcoming Gubernatorial and Attorney General Elections. The results have a margin of error of ±3.
