If you live in Tennessee, see the legislative alert that I received yesterday:
Yesterday, Sen. Steve Dickerson and Rep. Jeremy Faison introduced the Medical Cannabis Only Act of 2018, a bill that would allow Tennessee patients with certain health conditions to access safe, regulated marijuana. Nearly 80 percent of registered Tennessee voters support allowing patients the freedom to access medical marijuana.
Many patients who find relief from marijuana do not respond to prescription medications, and prescription drugs, like opiates, often come with far more serious side effects than marijuana. The majority of states recognize the medical value of marijuana, and it’s time for Tennessee to do the same.
This year, Tennessee could join the 29 states that have medical marijuana programs. Tennessean patients should not be forced to leave Tennessee or live as criminals for a moment longer. Let’s make 2018 the year that patients receive the protection they deserve.
