John Morgan for the governor's office? The popular attorney confirmed the rumors Thursday: he's is considering a run for Florida governor in 2018.

In an online post, Morgan, a longtime Democratic fundraiser, responded to a petition drive launched this week by the campaign manager for the Morgan-backed medical marijuana amendment, which Florida voters overwhelmingly approved last week.

He says two of his biggest platforms would be decriminalizing all marijuana and raising minimum wage to $15  an hour.
