Florida attorney John Morgan blasted Florida lawmakers for refusing to hear a bill on medical marijuana earlier in 2013, so he decided to organize a citizens' initiative to get the issue on the 2014 election ballot.
Florida-- Do you think medical marijuana should be legalized in Florida? You could be the deciding factor, if well-known attorney John Morgan gets his way.
Morgan, who's also former Governor Charlie Crist's boss, wants to get a proposed constitutional amendment legalizing prescription pot on the November ballot in 2014.

Today in Tallahassee, he blasted Florida lawmakers for refusing to hear a bill on medical marijuana earlier this year, so he decided to organize a citizens' initiative to get the issue on the election ballot.
Morgan is personally invested in the fight for legalization- saying marijuana helped ease his dying father's pain.
"The reason that I'm doing it is I'm looking for that peace because I know that service will give me peace. And I know that the peace that I'm going to get from this service, is going to give thousands of people- who are hurt and sick and injured- peace to the end of their lives," he explained.
For Morgan's plan of getting the issue on the ballot next year to work, he'll have to get nearly 700,000 signatures.
