Will lawmakers adhere to Florida’s decision on abortion and marijuana legalization?

Supporters of a Florida amendment protecting abortion access have overcome hurdles like petitions and the state Supreme Court, but face the challenge of securing 60% of voter approval in November. Lawmakers have a history of undermining amendments they disagree with, potentially impacting initiatives for recreational marijuana legalization. Advocacy groups may file legal challenges, while supporters are prepared to ensure legislators respect voter will. Past examples show how legislators can modify or delay implementing amendments. The future role of courts in interpreting abortion laws, particularly regarding fetal rights, adds uncertainty to the outcome. Groups are gearing up for continued advocacy regardless of the amendment’s fate.
