Florida Matters: Medical Marijuana
A group called United for Care is behind the push to get a constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana on the 2014 Florida ballot. The group is chaired by Orlando attorney John Morgan, founder of the law firm Morgan & Morgan, who is bankrolling the campaign.
But not everyone thinks medical marijuana should be legalized, including Kevin Sabet of the Drug Policy Institute at the University of Florida.
Charlie Brown, who serves on the city council in Denver, Colo., where medical and recreational marijuana are legal, says Florida should be prepared for plenty of challenges.
