Florida Attorney John Morgan To Match Every Donated Dollar To Medical Marijuana Campaign ...

Last year I declared Florida attorney John Morgan to be ‘Philanthropist of the Year.’ The award seemed fitting considering how much of his own money John Morgan put up for the 2014 Florida medical marijuana campaign. The last number I heard was that he donated between 4-8 million dollars for the campaign, which was just two percentage points away from passing. John Morgan is back at it again for the 2016 cycle. He recently announced that he would donate 9 dollars to the campaign for every 1 dollar donated by someone else. You donate $10, he chips in $90. You donate $100, he throws in $900.

Q poll shows Florida voters back recreational marijuana, Dems lead in Senate

Majorities of voters supported the legalization of marijuana for personal use in Ohio and Florida, while Pennsylvania voters were split on the question.

ResponsibleOhio, the political action committee behind Ohio’s Issue 3, which would pave the way for legal marijuana use, praised the news, saying this is indicative proof that legalization is the proper course for Ohio. “That’s because men are more likely than women to support legalization of marijuana for recreational use”.

Bill Would Grant Terminally Ill Floridians Access to Medical Marijuana

Poll numbers suggest that Florida's march to medical marijuana is inevitably, but it sure is taken a long time to get there. Sure, lawmakers approved non-smokable and non-euphoric "Charlotte's Web" medicinal marijuana for a narrow slice of patients back in 2014, but so far the state has stalled on actually getting that medicine into people's hands. 

Now, two Republican lawmakers have announced they've filed a bill that would allow another narrow segment of patients access to medical marijuana of all strengths and types.

Will 59 Million More Americans Get Access to Marijuana in 2016?

California and Florida could both pass legalized marijuana measures next year.

Marijuana advocates have been gaining momentum in states that have yet to legalize marijuana, but supporters and those interested in the legalization efforts are undeniably watching most closely to see what happens in California and Florida.

Those two states have different histories when it comes to their stance on marijuana, but both are likely to have marijuana bills on their ballots in 2016, and if those bills pass, then roughly 59 million Americans could enjoy greater access to marijuana by the end of next year.
