“People United for Medical Marijuana,” the political committee spearheading the push to legalize medical marijuana in Florida, raised $226,734 during April, according to campaign-finance reports filed with the state Division of Elections.
People United now has a total of $3.1 million overall through April 30, including $1.9 million in loans, most of which was used to collect the required 683,149 petition signatures for inclusion on the Nov. 4 ballot.
Orlando trial attorney John Morgan chairs the group, playing a substantial financial role. However, last month neither Morgan nor his law firm contributed any money, according to Monday’s report.
April’s largest contributor was Henry van Ameringen, a retiree from New York who gave $100,000.
