Morgan is a known medical cannabis advocate. His brother, who was left partially paralyzed and in constant pain after an accident, finds relief in marijuana.
So in 2016, Morgan threw his full weight behind Florida's Amendment 2 on the 2016 ballot. This legalized the use of cannabis product for certain medical uses. Then in 2018, Morgan announced that he would start working to get full marijuana legalization on the ballot in 2020.
On Monday, Florida Representative Shevrin Jones filed legislation Monday that would decriminalize the possession of certain amounts of marijuana in Florida.
