The Fight Against the Smoking Ban: Atty. John Morgan Sues the State for the Right to Smoke Medical Cannabis
Under the Florida Marijuana Law, vaping and edibles are allowed but approved patients are forbidden from smoking medical cannabis. House Majority Leader Ray Rodrigues sponsored the legislation and has pushed for the smoking ban. Legislators believe that medicine isn’t meant to be smoked and that smoking medical cannabis causes further harm instead. http://www.floridahealth.gov/programs-and-services/office-of-medical-marijuana-use/
However, Atty. John Morgan, best known for his all-out support of medical cannabis in Florida, filed a lawsuit against the State for the smoking ban.
Atty. John Morgan spearheaded and financed the successful campaign to make medical cannabis a constitutional right, and stated that the smoking ban is unconstitutional. According to a written statement by Atty. Morgan and his lead lawyer, Jon Mills, “Inhalation is a medically effective and efficient way to deliver Tetrahydrocannabinol [THC], and other cannabinoids, to the bloodstream.” Many individuals also state that smoking medical cannabis works better with some patients.
Seventy-one percent of voters approved expanding Florida’s existing medical cannabis law beyond those who are terminally ill. Amendment 2 includes patients with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Parkinson’s diseases, HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s, among others. Atty. Morgan states that when people voted for this amendment, they believed that they would be able to smoke medical cannabis, as long as they are able to meet the qualifications as a patient.
