Morgan considers recreational marijuana campaign for 2020

As Gov. Rick Scott's administration appeals a ruling invalidating the medical marijuana smoking ban passed by the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature, Orlando power lawyer John Morgan is considering launching a campaign to put a recreational marijuana legalization amendment on the 2020 ballot.
  • Morgan helped bankroll medical marijuana amendment in 2016
  • Full legalization measure may not enjoy broad support
  • Advocates believe enough support exists for measure to pass
Morgan is furious that Scott is refusing to accept the decision last month by Leon County Circuit Court Judge Karen Gievers to overturn the smoking ban, which was enacted in the wake of the overwhelming passage of Amendment 2 in 2016. Morgan helped bankroll the campaign behind the amendment.
"They have kicked the door wide open for recreational marijuana use in Florida," he said shortly after Scott signed the smoking ban into law.
Now, Morgan says he's contemplating a deep-pocketed campaign to pass a recreational marijuana amendment that would largely render moot the ongoing legal battle over the restrictive regulations Tallahassee has constructed around medical marijuana.
"I'm going to look at starting a fund where we can all donate to get full marijuana legalization on the ballot in 2020," Morgan wrote in a tweet this week. "When you mess with the will of the people there are unintended consequences!!"



A full marijuana legalization measure would almost certainly lack the level of popular support enjoyed by the 2016 medical marijuana amendment. Conservative voters, in particular, have concerns about the impact widespread marijuana use could have on public health and safety.
But industry advocates believe there's enough support for such a measure to pass, particularly in a presidential election year, when turnout tends to be higher. And conservatives might not be diametrically opposed to recreational marijuana legalization if the drug were to be taxed, benefiting state coffers.
"It would be a remarkable marketplace, and you would see a lot of interest in Florida from folks all over the country and all over the world 9 CONTINUED HERE: https://www.baynews9.com/fl/tampa/news/2018/06/28/morgan-recreational-marijuana-campaign

Someone needs to get him behind the ballot initiative by florians for freedom. Google floridians for freedom and have a read. Seems like the best legalization legislation Ive seen in any state, especially this one. If I understand correctly I would have the right to grow smoke possess and give away all I wanted. I could breed acres of long flowering sativas in the full sun. It would truely give the status quo a middle finger. Unfortunately itll probably be some regulate and tax bullshit with no private grows without being rich as fuck like they did with medical. Lets keep our fingers crossed. Im gonna contact someone I know close to John and see if they can persuade him.
