Supporters of legalized recreational marijuana in Florida just got a big-name backer: high-profile Orlando attorney John Morgan.

Morgan – Florida’s self-proclaimed “Pot Daddy”, tweeted Tuesday that he believes there is enough time and money to get the issue on the ballot in 2020.

“I have decided that I am too old to care. I believe marijuana should be legal.”

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Morgan says he doesn’t know whether he would back an existing ballot initiative or start a campaign from scratch.

A proposed state constitutional amendment to regulate marijuana like alcohol already has gathered more than 80,000 signatures. According to a June Quinnipiac poll, 65 percent of Florida voters support allowing adults to possess small amounts of recreational marijuana. Thirty percent oppose it.
