With only 12 active days remaining in this legislative session, we MUST force a vote (a Floor vote, more Committee studies, discussions, etc are just running out the clock) on #SB1182. This will allow doctors to give their patients marijuana as medicine, as they can in 23 states and DC. This is up from zero states in 1996, and is in keeping with the opinion of over 80% of both PA and the USA.
If we fail, the very small minority of opponents wins. #SB1182 ceases to exist. Sick kids and vets and their caregivers are back to square one. That means the same hearings, speeches, and demonstrations while our sickest get sicker.
Hat Tip to Brave Republican Supporters
Bravo to Republican PA Senators Chuck McIhinney (cited below), and others. Especially to Mike Folmer, prime sponsor of #SB1182. You show both courage and humanity by putting the needs of our sickest kids and veterans above the party line. You may pay a price, but that price will almost certainly be made up for by folks like me, who now support you. Peace, brothers and sisters.
I hope you will join me in telling our employees in our General Assembly to do as we wish.
