John Morgan's son considering race for attorney general



As if personal injury lawyer John Morgan didn’t already have his hands plenty full advising employee Charlie Crist on his governors race and leading a push for legalizing medical marijuana, now oldest son Mike Morgan is looking at running for attorney general.

“I share my dad’s passion for the legalization of medical marijuana,” he told the Buzz. “Pam Bondi is a great family friend and this is nothing personal, I just completely disagree with her stance on the medical marijuana issue. I believe the Attorney General needs to be pro consumer and compassionate, and this is an issue spans both.”

Mike Morgan said he is “giving serious consideration to entering the race in the fall,” but waiting to see how the Florida Supreme Court rules on challenges to ballot language for the medical marijuana initiative.

“At this point, I am at a wait and see,” he said.
