TAMPA, Fla. (TBO.com) — A small but steady steam of people backing a petition to get medical marijuana on the statewide ballot next year attended a music and arts festival in Citrus Park on Saturday.
The event called “Beyond the Smoke” drew a cross-section of the Tampa Bay community to The Dubliner Irish Pub at 12836 Henderson Road.
It was a gathering of young and old, and people of diverse backgrounds, ethnicities and political beliefs from the Tampa Bay area and beyond. They attended to promote the cause and collect more signatures.
United for Care and The Dubliner Irish Pub joined forces to sponsor the event featuring local musicians, artists and vendors. United for Care is leading the effort to collect enough signatures to place a constitutional amendment on the Florida ballot next November.
