Supporters of legalizing medical marijuana in Florida are one step closer to achieving their goal.

Early Friday afternoon, the Florida Division of Elections website showed over 710,000 verified signatures in support of the medical marijuana amendment.

The bill needed at least 683,149 voter signatures from at least 14 of Florida’s 27 congressional districts by Feb. 1, as required by state law. As of Friday, enough signatures have come from 14 congressional districts, putting it just over the required halfway mark.
