We all saw this coming. After last week's amateur video featuring SUPERATTORNEY John Morgan appealing to the more, uh, familiar audience for marijuana leaked by Peter Scorsch over at Saint Petersblog – a video we also posted on Aug. 29 (via saintpetersblog.com) – the pearl-clutchers and angry cops who are working against the legalization of medical marijuana on the November ballot have taken direct aim. According (once again) to Scorsch, the No on 2 folks have taken out A SINGLE BILLBOARD on East Colonial Drive just one half a mile from our office calling the benevolence of the proposed amendment into question. It looks a little something like this:

WAITAMINUTE, did they just call John Morgan, the king of all good times, "RECKLESS?" OK, so maybe the video was a bit reckless, but we're all that way sometimes. Basically he was campaigning to a demo that requires you to be reckless, right?

Not so bad, huh? Cough.

Uh, anyway, fresh into our inbox comes this missive from the Yes on 2, United for Care folks, featuring a bit of a shoulder brush from campaign manager Ben Pollara.

United for Care, the main organization advocating for the approval of Florida Amendment 2 allowing for the medical use of marijuana in the state, is welcoming the new billboard in downtown Orlando financed by the Drug Free America Foundation and targeting United for Care Chairman John Morgan.

“If they think they can win this election by making it a referendum on John Morgan, bring it on,” said Ben Pollara, Campaign Manager at United for Care.  “This campaign is about providing medicine to sick and suffering Floridians and that’s what we’ll talk about.”

“The opposition has so far been focused on trying to trick the electorate into thinking this is about legalization and not medicine; now they want to run against a lawyer and not the issue at hand,” added Pollara.  “We trust that the electorate is intelligent and compassionate. They continue to insult the voters at every opportunity.”

Let the billboard battle begin.
