Chairman John Morgan Speaks at NAACP State Conference
(Miami Beach) – The Florida NAACP and Minorities 4 Medical Marijuana, headquartered in Orlando, are both endorsing Amendment 2, which will be on the ballot titled Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Medical Conditions.
“We are thrilled to once again have the endorsement of the Florida NAACP and to now have Minorities 4 Medical Marijuana, a Florida non-profit and advocacy outreach organization fighting to pass a sensible medical marijuana law is fantastic. We really appreciate their support and we look forward to working with them,” said Ben Pollara, Campaign Manager.
Rosalind McCarthy, founder of Minorities 4 Medical Marijuana has a personal reason for supporting proposed Amendment 2. “I firmly believe my father, who suffered from glaucoma, would have benefited from medical marijuana. My son suffers from sickle-cell anemia and I think Amendment 2 is the only way he’ll ever have the option to legally reap the benefits medical marijuana can offer. My teenage son, just like the thousands of others who suffer from a disease that deteriorates their life, deserves another option- a less addictive option,” said Rosalind McCarthy. “We are going to do everything in our power to make sure the African-American community of central Florida votes during this election cycle.”
On Friday, September 9, 2016, John Morgan spoke in front of the Florida NAACP members during their 73rd state conference. During the conference Mr. Morgan highlighted prescription addictions and the need for another option in healthcare, the different ways medical marijuana can be administered, and the difference between the current medical marijuana laws and proposed Amendment 2.
