Sheldon Adelson Behind 85% of Florida’s Anti-Medical Marijuana Campaign


According to the Washington Post, casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson is behind 85 percent of the campaign against medical marijuana in Florida, which will be voted on next week.

Florida's Amendment 2 would provide medical marijuana to patients with debilitating diseases.

America's 12th richest person and chairman/CEO of Las Vegas Sands, Adelson, contributed $4.93 million of Drug Free Florida's $5.8 million raised. Drug Free Florida is the organization leading the campaign against medical marijuana and is headed by former Reagan drug czar Carlton Turner.

Only 15 percent of the no movement's money came from in-state donations. According to recent polls, support for the yes vote is outweighing opposition, even with all of the money that Adelson threw at the campaign.
