Publix Family Donates $800,000 to Prevent Medical Marijuana Legalization in South Florida.
Foregoing Publix chairwoman Carol Jenkins Barnett, donated a staggering $800,000 donation, to a conservative lobbying group in favor of criminalizing medicinal Marijuana in Florida. The group which goes by the name of "Drug Free Florida Committee" is one of the same conservative groups which voted to impede the legalization of Marijuana back in 2014. With false accusations of the supposedly "detrimental" effects of medicinal Marijuana, the orthodox group is joining forces with Publix to vanquish once again medicinal Marijuana in South Florida. Those in favor of medicinal Marijuana are also teaming up to not let the same lobbying groups preclude the passing of Marijuana legalization in this years 2016 Florida ballot.
