Sen. Rick Scott announces he will vote against legalizing recreational marijuana


The issue of drug addiction is personal for Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL). 

He lost his brother in April due to years of abusing controlled substances and alcohol. Scott claimed that his brother’s addiction first started with using marijuana in his youth and gradually evolved over the years. It was his brother’s death that he had in mind when he announced last week that he would be voting against a ballot measure in November to legalize recreational marijuana in Florida.
