“We firmly believe that Florida patients will have legal access to cannabis by November 2014,” says Jodi James, executive director of the Florida Cannabis Action Network, according to media reports.
Earlier, Florida lobbied a proposed medical marijuana bill that died in committee early in the 2013 legislative session. But now pro-medical marijuana groups have the power of John Morgan, head of the Morgan and Morgan law firm, behind their efforts.
Support for legalizing medical marijuana in Florida now sits at 70 percent, according to a survey conducted early this year by the Hamilton Campaigns consulting group for People United for Medical Marijuana.
