Orlando attorney John Morgan is one of the most familiar faces in this region, thanks to his TV commercials. He's going to log a lot of TV time this weekend for another reason: He will talk about his support for medical marijuana on three Orlando public-affairs programs.
Morgan will be Greg Warmoth's guest on "Central Florida Spotlight" at 12:30 p.m. Sunday on WFTV-Channel 9. Morgan also will talk about former Gov. Charlie Crist's candidacy for governor; Crist is an attorney at Morgan & Morgan in Tampa. Political analyst Rick Foglesong discusses the amendment process and whether he believes the medical marijuana ballot question was a political move to help get Crist elected.
Morgan will be a guest on "Flashpoint" at 8 a.m. Sunday on WKMG-Channel 6. Tony Pipitone is filling in as host, and another guest will be Teresa Miller, who operates the website rethinkpot.org, which opposes the legalization of medical marijuana.
And Morgan talks to John Brown on "Orlando Matters" at 7 a.m. Saturday on WRBW-Channel 65. They also discuss campaign reform and Crist's run against Gov. Rick Scott.
