After I was involved in a serious not-at-fault auto accident, and in checking reviews on many local attorneys, we made an appointment with Largey Law. During the initial meeting, I had no doubt we had chose correctly and signed with their firm to represent me. Chris Largey represented me and he along with his associate Kim Reno, well what can I say, they always had my best interest at heart. They not only made every step of the way as easy as possible, but always looked out for my best interest. They also made certain I received all the medical care I needed and handled all the paperwork involved with my claim. They were ALWAYS on top of every thing, every step of the way through to the claim settlement. They really cared about me, and on multiple occasions went above and beyond to help me through this this difficult situation, as during this my husband passed away from leukemia. It was nice to know they were there for me and handling this. I so appreciate everything Chris and Kim and staff have done for me through this and in finalizing my settlement, thank you so much! All I can say is I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Largey Law, they are professional, knowledgeable, responsive and most of all, a caring group of folks.
What a great law firm! Very compassionate and understanding. Always got back with me in a timely manner. I definitely recommend!
Very thorough and professional... Will use them again if the need arises.
Good law group, and has been in n communication with my husband and I, throughout the case... Thank you for your services...
Voters in New Jersey, Arizona, South Dakota and Montana approved legislation in November 2020 to legalize the use of recreational marijuana for anyone at least 21 years old. As a result, about one in three Americans now live in states where weed is legal for adults. Florida, however, still does not allow recreational marijuana use. That could change, though, if the state Supreme Court doesn’t kill the process first.
The political committee Make It Legal Florida is seeking to put a constitutional amendment on the 2022 ballot that would legalize recreational marijuana. After failing to get enough signatures to have the measure appear on the 2020 ballot, the committee has already obtained enough signers to make 2022 a possibility.
But signatures are not the only hurdle. Under Florida law, the state Supreme Court plays a critical role in determining whether a proposed constitutional amendment may appear on the ballot. Specifically, the court must sign off on the proposal’s wording and summary.
As proposed, the amendment would “permit adults 21 years or older to possess, use, purchase, display and transport up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and marijuana accessories for personal use for any reason.”
Florida State Solicitor General Amit Agarwal says that language is misleading and therefore the court should not approve the measure as written. Agarwal says the language makes it sound like the possession and purchase of marijuana would be entirely allowed, while in reality such actions would remain illegal under federal law.
Make It Legal Florida’s attorneys counter by saying that the text and summary of the proposal is clear and unambiguous. On Agarwal’s point about federal law, Make It Legal Florida says, “We’re changing the only law we can change. The only law we can change is Florida law.”
While the language that might appear on the 2022 ballot is still being worked out, the November voting cycle brought legalization supporters some welcome news on another front. Florida voters rejected Amendment 4, which would have forced any future constitutional amendments, such as a marijuana legalization amendment, to be approved twice. If Amendment 4 had been approved, it would have meant that even if voters approved recreational marijuana in 2022, the same measure would have to be voted on again in 2024. With Amendment 4’s rejection, that extra step is eliminated.
