Tampa, Florida -- Attorney John Morgan of Morgan and Morgan is well-known for his television advertisements and catchy slogan, "For the People."

And of late, Morgan has also become the mouthpiece for medical marijuana.

He has a new radio campaign that's hit the airwaves in the past week.

In it, Morgan said, "I want to ask you to help tens of thousands of Floridians who desperately need your help. They are suffering with illnesses, such as, cancer ALS, AIDS, epilepsy, MS, debilitating injuries, including paralysis -- many terminal."

"Medical marijuana has been proven to give our loved ones relief they need," added Morgan.

Lawmakers in Tallahassee didn't act on the issue last legislative session, so Morgan is now working on getting 700,000 signatures on a petition so medical marijuana can get added to the ballot next year.

If you are interested in the issue, Morgan wants to hear from you. In the ad, he stated, "Email me at JohnMorgan@ForthePeople.com."
