The effort to get recreational marijuana on the Florida 2016 ballot has failed.

However, as I previously posted medical marijuana is likely to make the 2016 Florida ballot and most experts expect it to pass.  The prior medical marijuana attempt, Amendment Two, narrowly failed when it received 58% voter approval (falling just short of the 60% required).  At present, United for Care reports 800,000 petition signatures collected with 380,706 validated.  The ballot initiative needs 683,000 valid signatures by February to make the ballot.
