Weed - Minnesota Cultivates Medical Marijuana Bill

 

Late Friday Afternoon… a proactive group of Minnesota state politicians, representing both sides of the aisle came together with patients and supporters from Minnesotans for Compassionate Care. Their purpose was to bring attention to a new MMJ bill. And what better way to get mass attention fast, than by holding a news conference on the steps of the state capitol. If Minnesota’s medical marijuana bill is made law,  it would allow people with serious illnesses to access medicinal pot, should their doctors recommend it.

Rep. Carly Melin (DFL-Hibbing) introduced HF 1818 in the House, and Sen. Scott Dibble (DFL-Minneapolis) introduced the companion – SF 1641 – in the Senate. Both bills have the maximum number of sponsors allowed – 35 in the House, including 12 committee chairs, and five in the Senate, including two committee chairs. If you live in Minnesota, please email your state senator and representative and ask them to support HF 1818/SF 1641.

Eighteen states and the District of Columbia already allow seriously ill residents to use medical marijuana with their doctors’ recommendations, and 65% of Minnesotans support a compassionate medical marijuana law. Urge Gov. Dayton to join this growing majority.

    This is wonderful news. I’m glad they’re finally getting this ball rolling. Let’s hope they stop restricting access to the cure for cancer. The Cannabis plant is a very versatile and useful plant. It has been used by cultures around the world for centuries. There are thousands of uses for it including medicine, food, construction, jewelry, cosmetics, bioremediation, biofuel, and many more. Recently (within the last 60 years) there has been a war against this miraculous plant and the people who use it and grow it. The reasons for said war are hard to nail down without being labeled as a conspiracy theorist. This page exists to present the facts about Grass, and let you decide on your own if the war is justified. We believe there is a bright future for humanity if the war is ended and Cannabis is freed from the stigmas and lies of recent history.

      Please see the good in it. More money is spent trying to stop something that will never be stoped…more money can be gained by legalization and less crime. Wich saves our police force and court systems with petty and minor drug bust, just to make it seem there winning a war they created.. regulation is key yes. But stop the ignorance..
