John Morgan is 'astounded' by Florida lawmakers' 'collective stupidity' on medical marijuana

Lawyer and medical marijuana apologist John Morgan is looking to 2016 with a plea to fill the coffers of his campaign for legal medicinal pot, United for Care.

And he’s doing it with harsh words directed at the Florida Legislature, where medical marijuana didn’t take off this year and even an attempt to speed up bureaucratic processes surrounding low-THC cannabis called Charlotte’s Web were stalled. He sent out this email to supporters Monday:

“The collective stupidity of the Florida legislature continues to astound me.

“Let's face it - most politicians are out to protect their own careers. But by ignoring medical marijuana, they are not only endangering their personal chances in 2016, they're very possibly setting up a scenario that could have an impact on the presidential race. Turnout WILL change because of our presence on the ballot.

“And with God as my witness - we are going to be on the ballot.

“We are going to win this war for the patients of Florida. Make a donation here today, and I'll match it.

“What's outrageous is that they just doubled down... calling a special session of legislature and leaving medical marijuana off the agenda.
