I find it ironic and offensive that the Florida sheriffs have all but
seamlessly aligned themselves with the no-on-2 organization -- with
some sheriffs even posting the group's ads on their Facebook accounts
- -- as this organization's campaign is:

* Funded by millions of dollars in gambling money.

* Promoting the treatment of medical conditions with only Big
Pharma/FDA-approved prescriptions of medications like oxycodone,
hydrocodone, morphine or Xanax.

This organization states the devil's in the details; however, in this
group the devil is clearly far more involved. The fabrications,
falsehoods and hobgoblins put forth by these strange bedfellows are
designed to instill fear simply to protect their authority; a truly
selfish act.

Your vote will determine whether your physician has a treatment
option, and I assure you that one day you will want your physician to
have that option. Otherwise it's FDA-approved oxycodone, hydrocodone,
morphine and Xanax. Those medications should be your last option, not
the only option.

When you vote, remember the words of Dr. Albert Schweitzer: "Pain is 
a more terrible lord of mankind then even death itself."
