Tampa, FL -  With a tight deadline coming up, backers of Medical Marijuana says they are confident they will have enough signatures to get the measure on the 2014 ballot. 

If they get the signatures, the only thing that will stand in it's way is the amendment's ballot language.

According to the Tampa Tribune, the campaign appears to be a long way from its goal.

Earlier this year, Pam Bondi, Florida's Attorney General, criticized the proposed amendment in a filing she made to the Florida Supreme Court. By law, the attorney general asks the court to review proposed amendments.

She also called the amendment misleading. Bondi told the court that if passed by voters the measure would allow marijuana use in limitless situations.

Bondi also said the amendment could confuse voters that medical marijuana use would be allowed under federal law.

The group pushing the amendment - People United for Medical Marijuana - needs to gather nearly 700,000 signatures in order to make the 2014 ballot.
