As I have blogged about in the past, Idaho is a very scary place to be a cannabis consumer. I have quite a few relatives that live there, and the stories I have heard from them are very heartbreaking.
Idaho is the only state to have vetoed a CBD-only bill, lawmakers there once introduced a measure that would make it illegal to legalize marijuana (yes, really), and current Idaho law states that it is against the law to even have marijuana in your system while in the state. With that in mind, check out the action alert I received today (located below) and if you live in Idaho, please do your part:
Idaho lawmakers began their 2018 legislative session last week, but so far there are no marijuana policy reform bills on the agenda. Idaho is one of only two states in the entire U.S. that does not even have a limited low-THC medical cannabis law. Seriously ill Idahoans deserve better. Please click here to ask your representatives to show compassion and introduce a medical marijuana bill in 2018.
Idaho’s patients should have access to treatments that can help alleviate the suffering of those with serious conditions like cancer, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy and help reduce patients’ use of dangerous opiates. Ask your lawmaker: if your child was suffering and you knew there was a plant that could ease that suffering, wouldn’t you do anything to provide it for them?
Thank you for taking action,
