  John Morgan, who is financing the campaign to legalize medical marijuana in Florida, says the issue is about doing what’s right, not a ploy to bring Democrats to the polls. As the News Service of Florida reports, the Orlando attorney says he is willing to spend millions on the effort because he saw first-hand how marijuana helped his father cope with nausea and pain as he was dying of esophageal cancer.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
