Orlando TV Station To Air Medical Marijuana Debate

Oct 18, 2016

A medical marijuana debate is scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m. on WESH, Channel 2 in Orlando.

 

Amendment 2 would legalize full-strength medical marijuana for patients with conditions including HIV-AIDS, cancer and epilepsy. It will feature the amendment’s biggest supporter, attorney John Morgan, debating substance abuse counselor Jessica Spencer.

The debate also will be streamed online.

 

Morgan and his law firm have poured millions to get Amendment 2 on the ballot, and Drug Free Florida has begun airing ads against medical marijuana.

 

Voters narrowly defeated a similar measure in 2014, falling just shy of the 60 percent needed to win. Every poll taken this year has shown medical marijuana having enough votes to pass.
