John Morgan: Right before my dad passed

I am posting this post verbatim from http://www.unitedforcare.org/right_before_my_dad_passed because it is vital that Florida enact this law, I beg all Floridians to get out and vote for this on November 4, 2014. Although over 80% of Floridians believe Medical Marijuana should be available to people like myself who are suffering the measure requires over 60% of the voters to vote in favor for it to pass and become law. Strangely, many of the opponents to this measure are not residents of Florida and I have read that the largest contributor that funds the opposition movement supports Medical Marijuana in Israel, but opposes it in Florida. Please get out and vote and consider volunteering to knock on doors or contribute to this effort in anyway you can.

John Morgan: Right before my dad passed

Posted by United For Care on August 25, 2014 ·

I watched cancer take my dad, slowly and painfully. I know so many of you have been through similar experiences, watching an illness consume someone close to you, eating away at their quality of life.

That helpless feeling… not being able to make it better, to alleviate their suffering, is one of the worst feelings in the word. In our case, despite my dad’s concerns about the legality, we were able to convince him to try marijuana.

And here’s what happened: his pain eased, his appetite came back, he was able to ease off the narcotics, and for a while, he felt better.

I’m one of thousands of contributors in support of medical marijuana and Amendment 2. Will you join me? Please donate here.

Medical marijuana is legal in nearly half of the states in the country. And where it’s legal – none of the scary, apocalyptic consequences promised by the opposition have come true. Violent crime has gone down, youth consumption has remained flat, and society has not collapsed. I

Here’s what did happen: patients got access to another form of medicine, safer and less addicting than what doctors were legally allowed to recommend before.

We’re going to win this thing – but the No on 2 folks are well funded and pushing a lot of misinformation. We need your help:

Please join me in supporting Amendment 2, compassionate care for patients that need it, and help us to victory. Contribute today.

Thank you,

John Morgan
Chairman

    We passed this in Maryland and crime rates have gone down, sick people are feeling better and society is just as strong as it ever was, if not stronger. So I ask all of you FLORIDIANS to pass the medical marijuana, it may be the thing your friend or family member needs to feel better without narcotics that make them just sleep and not eat.

  3. I just don’t get it. This is about quality of life. Why should people have to suffer when there is a perfectly good drug out there that can and does help.
    Since I live with Chronic pain every day I know it’s not easy. Florida has a bad reputation for pain management. I just discussed this with my PM Doc here In Jersey.
    I’m so sorry you had to go through this with your Dad. I pray this law passes. Re-blogging, tweeting, and sharing where I can.
