John Morgan, Medical Marijuana Advocate, Spends $2.8 Million for the Final Push

Orlando-based attorney and pro-medical marijuana advocate John Morgan has put $2.8 million into the effort to get the legalization of medical marijuana on the Florida ballot come November.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Morgan has given the folks at United for Care a $909,000 loan to advance the effort.

Morgan and United for Care have until February 1 to turn in 700,000 signatures to force a vote in November, and the lawyer is pushing hard and opening up his wallet as the deadline draws nearer.
