If he runs for governor, John Morgan would push pot legalization

John Morgan has hinted time and again that he’ll throw his hat in the gubernatorial race, and now he’s suggesting recreational cannabis legalization would be his principal platform.

Under the medical marijuana program Morgan championed, Floridians with cancer, AIDS, chronic pain and other serious health issues can seek a doctor’s permission to use cannabis. As of early September, more than 36,000 patients had joined the state’s medical marijuana registry.
