Orlando lawyer John Morgan on Tuesday backed a campaign to legalize recreational marijuana in Florida through a constitutional amendment in 2020, declaring that “I am too old to care” about opposition to the proposal.

“I believe that #marijuana should be legal!!” Morgan wrote on his Twitter account. “I think we have time and I think there is money to get it done. I already have the minimum wage signatures. Let’s do this maybe, forget Tallahassee! #ForThePeople – #PotDaddy”

In June, Morgan tweeted a different tune: “I support the full legalization of #marijuana. However, my plate is full w/ a living wage for Florida’s working poor. I can only slay one dragon at a time.”

What changed?

“I was approached by industry leaders who have the deep deep pockets to do it and do it fast,” Morgan said in an email Tuesday.

A strong majority of voters — 65% to 30% — said they wanted to see marijuana legalization in Florida, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll in June, a showing the pollsters called “an all-time high in the state” on the marijuana issue.

Two years ago, the same poll found 56% in favor and 41% opposed.
