So what are the odds it gets out of the subcommittee? Who decides weather it gets approved for the ballot or not, and finally does it have to have an either pass or fail in the subcommitee or can it just sit there and die sortof?

Anyone know when the committee deadline(s) for moving this bill are?
There are over 1.7 million seriously ill people in Florida. They have the right to safe, affordable, and effective medication. The goal of this committee is to get medical marijuana legal in the state of Florida. We are working to get our legislators to change the laws. One way to do this is the ballot initiative process.
We are collecting signatures on a petition that supports a constitutional amendment giving patients the right to grow, obtain, purchase and possess medical marijuana under a doctor's supervision. We need valid signatures from 676,811 registered voters and millions of dollars in donations. The deadline for the 2012 election ballot is February 1, 2012.
We are purely a grassroots effort, we run only on your donations, do not have a paid staff and everyone is a volunteer. We utilize the internet for networking an extensive group of supporters. We are on facebook, myspace, meetup, and twitter. We are developing a network of patients, businesses, doctors, and lawyers who will support us.
Volunteers and event booths will be placed at public events to educate, collect signatures, and accept donations. Promotional techniques will include multi-media advertising, printed literature, public event placement, direct marketing and personal networking.
Provide relief for terminally and seriously ill patients.
Give patients a safe venue to obtain their medicine.
Allow patients to grow a limited supply.
Create a registry to help law enforcement distinguish law abiding citizens.
Decrease state health care costs with an inexpensive medication that provides lasting results.
Lower the crime rate, saving the state millions in prison costs.
Create thousands of new jobs and boost our economy.
Provide a new tax revenue for the state - an estimated $200 million per year.
Maintain restrictions for non-medicinal use.
