Florida’s African Connection

Would it surprise you to learn that some of the deep basement rocks underlying Florida were once part of Africa? Florida’s geologic history has been traced back to the early Paleozoic Era, 540 – 251 million years ago (mya), largely through the study of rock samples obtained from oil test wells drilled in northern Florida and nearby Georgia and Alabama. In Florida, the top of the Paleozoic strata ranges from approximately 3,000 to 8,000 feet below land surface and they consist of igneous and metamorphic rocks overlain by sandstones and shales.

Floridians For Freedom

fff-smokey

Only the “Right Of Adults To Cannabis” amendment can secure your RIGHT to possess, cultivate, and use cannabis in a manner similar to your 2nd amendment right to “keep and bear arms” … think about that for a minute.

Whether you agree or disagree with Americans right to gun ownership, the strength of this protected right is clear and viewed my many as absolute. Floridians For Freedom​ believes adults right to whole plant cannabis should be comparable and hopes you agree. Full Story ⤳

Don’t be a racist prick

stop

STOP! If you are about to post some ignorant, racist shit on this site, know that you will be called out for it. You will be fact-checked, and laughed at. If you threaten anyone or make egregious ad hominem attacks then you will be banned. Just chill. Think before you speak/type. Florida is fucked up enough without racism.

If you DO have an aversion towards people of a certain race, please just go make friends with one… you will find they are a lot like you. Letting go of hatred will clear up your mind for better things, and you will be happier.

That being said, culture jokes are fine here at WTF Florida. Florida’s a beautifully diverse place, and the nuances of how we all get along is part of our weird hilarity. Just don’t be a racist prick. If you wouldn’t say it in Miami or out in the boonies, don’t say it here.

Be decent to each other and enjoy the site. We will also say this to balance things out: fuck being politically correct. This page is offensive, crude, and ridiculous, just like the news articles we post. If you are laughing at the misfortune of the people whose mugshots arrive on our site, then you should be able to take a fucking joke.

This is our semi-official new policy we just pulled out of our ass. Please feel free to comment with any suggestions as to how we can improve our site, Florida, and the world.
