I received the following message out of West Virginia today:

West Virginia State Senator Richard Ojeda, who championed last year’s medical cannabis legislation, has put forward a new bill for 2018 seeking to make the medical cannabis program more accessible for patients.

SB 487 would make several positive changes to the law, including allowing patients and caregivers to grow their own limited supply of cannabis. It would also eliminate onerous restrictions on doctors and make it easier for patients to qualify. You can read a summary of the bill here.

Please call your state senators today and urge them to make the medical cannabis law more workable for patients and doctors!

After you call your state senators, please forward this message to your family and friends!
