A leading "Democratic donor" says he's going to lead the drive to get Florida to legalize medical marijuana.

According to John Morgan, the millionaire founder of the Morgan & Morgan law firm and boss of former Gov. Charlie Crist, told the Miami Herald he's going to put his money, plus money from other donors, and his political weight behind this.

The effort could cost more than $14 million to get a constitutional amendment passed.

Morgan says he's doing it because his father suffered from health problems and only illegal marijuana eased his pain.
