John Morgan slams national party chair over medical marijuana stance

Debbie Wasserman Schultz's public dismissal of Amendment 2 stirs pot, controversy

“I know personally the most powerful players in Washington, D.C.,” he said. “And I can tell you that Debbie Wasserman Schultz isn’t just disliked. She’s despised. She’s an irritant.

Oh, it gets worse. But before we even get to that, some cooler heads – but certainly not as fun heads – from United for Care tried to match Wasserman Schultz’s mommy-blog talking points with reason, specifically that reason provided by a 5-2 majority of the Florida Supreme Court, which found the ballot language regarding who could get a prescription for cannabis to be just fine.

“Ms. Wasserman Schultz says she feels Amendment 2 is too broad, but in fact it’s quite specific,” United for Care campaign manager Ben Pollara wrote in an emailed statement. “It establishes the right of a physician to recommend medical marijuana to a patient with a debilitating condition if its use would offer that patient relief. It then asks the Florida Department of Health to build a regulatory framework that makes it possible for that person to have access to the medicine he or she needs.”

As the Herald points out, this could actually be a leg up for the amendment, seeing as many were suspecting this whole thing could be a, cough, smokescreen for getting Morgan’s favorite wisp of white, Charlie Crist, back into the governor’s mansion in November. Now everything’s gone all crazy and bipartisan, with up to 88 percent of people supporting weed for those in need. But that’s not really enough to calm Morgan on a particularly chatty day.

In addition to threatening to run against her should she pursue her ambitions to become a U.S. Senator – he has the friends and the money, see – he’s also taken her NUMBER out of his CELLPHONE.

“She is the new Allen West of South Florida,” Morgan not-at-all overstated to the Herald. “She should just become a bridesmaid for Pam Bondi’s next wedding.

Zing!
