In 2014, proponents of Amendment 2 brought in $8.1 million to back their effort to legalize medical marijuana in Florida. Opponents raised $6.4 million, including $5.5 million from Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

This year, the gap widened. Pot supporters raised $6.1 million through Oct. 28, while opponents brought in just $3.4 million, including $1.5 million from Adelson.

Proponents say weed critics have been less generous this year because the measure looks likely to pass.
