TALLAHASSEE — An anti-drug group opposed to medical marijuana is helping craft Florida laws on pot's expanded use — a cause its founders tried and failed to defeat during last year's elections.

The St. Petersburg-based Drug Free America Foundation is one of several anti-drug groups tied to conservative financiers Mel and Betty Sembler that opposed constitutional amendments legalizing medical marijuana in 2014 and 2016.

I hope it all goes well for the people in Florida. I bet one could grow some fine sativa there.

This is the same Mel, and Betty Sembler that founded the teen drug testament center Straight, Inc., that got sued for false imprisonment of one of their 'Clients' in the mid '80s.
