COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC-QB: CBIS), a U.S. Company specializing in cannabis formulation-based drug development and related consulting, is encouraged by recent polling data by Quinnipiac University showing widespread support among voters in Florida for November's upcoming constitutional referendum on medical cannabis.  The most recent study shows 88 percent of Florida voters are in favor of cannabis for medical uses.
