If you’ve ever come across John Morgan (or videos of John Morgan) reveling in nightlife abandon, then it may not surprise you that the man who is “for the people” on your television screens all day is also for himself when he gets a spare minute. Still, Morgan’s surprise announcement earlier this year that he would become the new face of legalizing medical marijuana in the state of Florida shocked most, especially considering the power attorney’s strong Democratic political ties (he saved Charlie Crist by making him a Democrat … and a staffer!) and statutory day job. His aim, though, is true. Morgan’s father suffered from esophageal cancer and used marijuana to help get through the pain a decade ago. The United for Care petition movement is a tribute to him, and the most plausible means for the measure to even survive giggle-fits in Florida’s conservative governance. Morgan’s got money, see?
