John Morgan already has the battle cry for his upcoming fight to change Florida’s constitution to legalize medical marijuana.
“I’ll take God’s plant over Big Pharma’s pills,” Morgan says.
Morgan, a high-profile Orlando attorney whose firm employs former Florida governor Charlie Crist, says he is willing to pour up to $3 million of his own money into a petition drive to get the issue on the November 2014 ballot.
Morgan is organizing “an army of angels” to gather the 788,000 signatures needed statewide. In his view (and mine too), marijuana is safer, better and more natural than synthetic opioids and painkillers like oxycodone and hydrocodone, which he says kill thousands through abuse and addiction.
If the petition drive succeeds, the amendment will need 60 percent voter approval to pass.
