John Morgan: This aggression will not stand.

Over the line!

That's how I feel about the No on 2's latest lies. First, they come after me personally in direct mail (as if I'm what this Amendment's about)—and then they have the gall to say marijuana isn't medicine. 

Well, that's just like, your opinion, man.

It certainly isn't the opinion of doctors (like Sanjay Gupta), nurses, patients who have actually tried it, or even the state legislature and Governor, which passed and signed a limited, fatally-flawed version of a medical marijuana law in this very state. 

This isn't 'Nam. There are rules. And one rule is that you don't mess with patients. And frankly, their nihilism is both exhausting and not scientific.

This aggression will not stand.  So here is what we're going to do:

...We're going to come together. 
...We're going to raise a crap-ton of money right here.
...We're going to win and make sure patients like my brother get the access they need.

Do not mark it zero:

  • Please everyone. I have had the joy of knowing what its like to be doped up on opioids to help with my chronic pain and also have known the painful withdrawal effects associated with them. After Big Pharm got me all doped up, along with the Doctors that made millions from pushing the pills, I say, Come on everybody. Marijuana is the only thing that I have used that truly works for my severe neuropathy. Work it does. I and people like myself can benefit greatly if this bill is passed. Look, i’m no doper. I just need help getting through day by day things, and to help me live a healthier and happier life. The benefits of marijuana is far greater than opioids. Vote Yes on admendment 2. Please help people such as myself finally break the Big Pharma dope dealers. Thank you.
  • Speaking of lies about the amendment, here’s an interesting conversation I had this weekend.

    I was going door to door for the Alachua County Democrats informing people that October 11th is the last day to register to vote on Novemer 8th and registering anyone who needed to, when a sweet older lady (maybe 80) answered my knock.

    I explained why I was there. She said, no I’m registered already honey, and I even got my ballot in the mail on Thursday. But I have a questions I’d like to ask you.

    I told her I would be happy to help. I hadn’t mentioned that I was with the democratic party or that I was an attorney. As far as she knew I was just someone there getting people registered to vote. I guess I have a trustworthy face. :-/

    She said that she had read the information about the Florida Constitutional Amendment regarding medical marijuana and thought it was a good idea. But then that same day she saw a commercial on television warning that if passed the amendment would allow pot candy stores with enticing colorful pot treats to open right next to grade schools across our state.

    I told her that the commercial was nonsense, and she told me that that was her first reaction when seeing it, but then she started wondering if she was missing some terrible part to the amendment that wasn’t printed on her ballot.


    Anyhow thank you for your work, John.

  • As a libertarian, I’m pro-choice on everything, so I would be FOR this even were there no medical or other benefits to be found. It is abundantly clear that The War On Drugs causes more harm than do the drugs themselves, and part of that harm is the non-availability of the benefits that actually ARE associated with certain substances.
  • Two years ago I was faced with a choice. I was in pain management, my meds had escalated to hydroporphone(dilaudid) 4mg 4x a day. The problem was from Brandon to Lakeland not a single pharmacy would fill the prescription. I suffered horrific withdrawal. 10 days of misery and the full brunt of my many injuries roaring through my broken body. While under my doctor’s care I was drug tested monthly and followed the rules. However after my cvs, the Walgreens, the Publix, Winn Dixie and the Walmart refused to fill it. I made a phone call, and 20 minutes later… I wish it was not an either/ or, option. MM is very helpful, and I don’t curl up in a ball of pain if I run out. After having to detox off opiates it’s a walk on the beach. I don’t think people realize that it’s already here. What we are seeking is legitimately. My lungs are shot, I’m 52 and candy or a brownie would be perfect. Perhaps with all the revenue they will be collecting some of it would be spent developing powerful non addictive pain medication. I am so aware of doctor’s being reluctant to prescribe long term pain meds for patients. I get it. But for those of us who deal with daily lifelong pain, we deserve to seek relief with dignity.
  • First of all . All the crap spewed by law enforcement and prohibitionist’s is total BS! All the bad things that could come from Marijuana have already happened. I am a Florida native. When I was in middle school, while teachers issued textbooks dime bags were being distributed by certain students. I don’t recall ever seeing alcohol on campus. Would that have been the case if Marijuana was legal? I think not! It is time we applied common sense and compassion to all of our drug laws. I still can’t understand why Drabinnol which is THC produced by a pharmaceutical company is a schedule III narcotic while Marijuana remains a schedule I! MONEY? What else?
  • I’d like to thank you John for supporting Medical Marijauna for Florida, I spent 2 years in Michigan which MM is legal, there is nothing of the kind of crap that Russ Gordon is spewing out happening there. The TV ads are nothing but propaganda, everyone with a brain knows big Pharma is opposing it because of profit loss. Why do you think the “Duchess” of Publix donated $800,000 to the opposition.
    I have PTSD, Chronic arthritis, anxiety and depression, CBD helps me tremendously and if these idiots would do any type of real research they would find that every human has an Endocanabanoid system, ref; I would really like them to see the Charlottes Web story and then get their opinion. The BS bureaucrats with the their buddies running only 2 dipenseries for the whole state of FL is worse than VA, what a joke, also there are 2 MM patients in Florida that the federal government supplies them with Cannabis on a monthly basis, for decades now!
    Keep up the good work! A lot of sick adults and kids are counting on this passing.
    PS All you haters, do some research before puking illiterate crap out.
  • Thank you so much. Ive suffered from sever depression for almost a decade now and pharmacuticals have always failed or worsened my disorder. Canabis is the only medicine I have been able to take that not only works for the depression but also my physical pain from years of self destruction. Also many of my close friends are ex military in severe physical and mental pain daily that wish the va recognized canabis as the wonder drug it is. We live in America we should be able to choose between natural holistics and pharmacutical medicines.
  • Russ Gordon; Yes there is freedom of speech and you have that right. But please, do me a favor? Try to engage your brain before opening your mouth. The speech you are giving us sounds more like you are a suffering alcoholic, with sick thinking. A rational intelligent open minded individual, or even a second grader can tell you do not know what you are talking about. Ask any police officer how many domestic violence calls he responded to that had alcohol to blame. Then ask how many calls he responded to for domestic violence that a Medical marijuana Patient (that only had Delta9 thc in their system) was to blame. The same can be said for car crashes. Robberies, Rape and the list goes on.
  • @russian Gordon: hahaha, you should take your comedy act on the road!

    But seriously, Florida, we got this! We got close last time, just remember the no side dealso in lies and misinformation to keep the status quo!
  • get a life john morgan its called freedom and speech and first amendment and right to speak peaceably and freely and share your view with others that so not see it that way; you conveniently do not discuss the stoned middle schooler that takes a blade to his schoolmate’s throat and snuffs out a life at the age of 12; the overloaded stoned sisters on a joyride after puffing three or how bout four blunts and wipe out an oncoming pregnant motorist and they take one real life and one life in being(Roe v. Wade); the stones hubby who hates his wife and hates her more after a few beers and his favorite rolled joint and then really gives her an ass whoopin’ and send her to EMS paramedics…………… well well seems that mr. john morgan may have overlooked something, Methinks. you could lose this one John and do a repeat swan dive from your failings circa: 2014—— could happen my friend…!!!!!!!!."
  • I have PTSD and anxiously await the day that I can use marijuana instead of a dozen pills a day
  • God bless you Mr Morgan. Without you there would be no hope for many of us in pain and sick.
