Ask Gov. Abbott to add medical cannabis to the special session!
Compassion should be inclusive. Contact the governor now!
During Texas’ regular legislative session this spring, more than half of the Texas House signed onto a bill that would make the Compassionate Use Program more inclusive. Unfortunately, that bill was beat by the clock and was not given a vote. There’s a special session underway now, giving us another chance to bring patients safe and legal access to medical cannabis!
Only Gov. Abbott can add an item to the list of issues legislators can consider during the special session.
Contact him now!
Texas’ existing law only applies to patients with intractable seizures. Let the governor know: Patients with other debilitating conditions deserve protection, too.
Many of the issues being debated by legislators are contentious and causing heated debate along partisan lines. Unlike those issues, the matter of medical cannabis has earned bi-partisan support.
Take action today by contacting Gov. Abbott and your legislators; ask them to add this important issue to the special session for consideration. It’ll be tough to convince the governor to add anything relating to cannabis to the special session, so we need to create a groundswell of support. After you take action, please spread the word. Texas patients are counting on us.
Email the governor and your legislators, then share this email with anyone you know who cares about bringing Texas patients safe and legal access to medical cannabis!
P.S. Like all proposed amendments to the Medical Board sunset bill, Rep. Lucio III’s amendment was not allowed to be considered on Monday. This makes adding medical cannabis to the special session even more important.
