Dougherty Report Rewind: John Morgan Talks About Medical Marijuana in Florida

Just before the 2014 Election, Attorney John Morgan appeared on The Dougherty Report on behalf of “United For Care.”  Amendment 2 was on the November 4, 2014 ballot in the state of Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment.  The final count showed more YES votes than NO, but since the measure failed to reach the 60% super majority needed for passage, the measure was defeated.

The measure will appear on the November 2016 ballot, and Florida voters once again will have the opportunity to make their voices heard.
