Kansas Session Begins With Medical Marijuana On The Agenda

I received the following good news alert out of Kansas today. If you live in Kansas, then you are likely well aware that cannabis reform is desperately needed in your state. Get active if you are a Kansas resident. See below:

Kansas lawmakers began their 2018 legislative session last week with several marijuana bills before them, including SB 187 / HB 2348, the Kansas Safe Access Act. This bill would create an effective medical marijuana program in Kansas. Please click here to ask your representatives to show compassion and allow patients access to treatments that can help alleviate the suffering associated with serious conditions like cancer, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy. Medical marijuana can also help reduce patients’ use of dangerous opiates.

These bills were introduced in 2017 (the legislative session carries over from 2017 to 2018), yet never even received a hearing. And, Kansas 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 Kansans deserve better.

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 help them? 

Thank you for taking action,
