Tampa, Florida -- Attorney John Morgan of Morgan and Morgan is well-known for his television advertisements and catchy slogan, "For the People."
And of late, Morgan has also become the mouthpiece for medical marijuana.
He has a new radio campaign that's hit the airwaves in the past week.
LISTEN: John Morgan's pro-medical pot radio ad
In it, Morgan said, "I want to ask you to help tens of thousands of Floridians who desperately need your help. They are suffering with illnesses, such as, cancer ALS, AIDS, epilepsy, MS, debilitating injuries, including paralysis -- many terminal."
"Medical marijuana has been proven to give our loved ones relief they need," added Morgan.
Lawmakers in Tallahassee didn't act on the issue last legislative session, so Morgan is now working on getting 700,000 signatures on a petition so medical marijuana can get added to the ballot next year.

D.C. councilman to introduce bill legalizing marijuana
Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, September, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
Legalized pot in the nation's capital is no pipe dream.
D.C. councilman David Grosso plans to introduce legislation Sept. 17 that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana in the city — with a dance with Mary Jane possibly replacing the played-out Potomac two-step.
"If we're going to have alcohol legal in this country, I don't see any reason why we couldn't have marijuana legal," Grosso said — bluntly.
The bill will outline a plan for regulating and taxing marijuana sales and create licensing requirements for the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration, Grosso told The Washington Times.
It will also reportedly enable pot smokers to grow small amount of cannabis on their property.
Grosso, who is still working on the bill, thinks a few attempts might be needed before the legislation passes, but hopes this first round will spark a debate.
"The motivation for decriminalization simply has been the issue of the war on drugs and the disproportionate impact on African-American youths getting criminal records," Wells told The Washington Times.

Dodger hits three homers, displays marijuana hat in locker
Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
Maybe it’s just a tribute to celebrated Dodgers fan Snoop Dogg.
Dodgers infielder Juan Uribe hit three home runs in Monday night’s thrashing of the Diamondbacks. It was the first three-homer game of Uribe’s 13-year career. It even earned him a curtain call.
After the game, Uribe spoke to reporters by his locker, as players do. Only unlike most players, Uribe held court in front of a hat that appeared to have a giant marijuana leaf on it.
First off, it’s just a hat. It’s not like Uribe gave a postgame interview on camera with a giant bag of weed visible in his locker. Second, medical marijuana is legal in California, and maybe Juan Uribe needs help managing his glaucoma pain or something. Or maybe he just saw Snoop Dogg wearing a similar hat in the video for Nuthin’ But a G Thang and thought it looked cool.
