      Nashville, TN

We started this campaign to encourage Tennessee voters to contact their state representatives and encourage them to support HB 1385, the Koozer-Kuhn Medical Cannabis Act. One of our friend's sons experiences dozens of devastating seizures daily and ruining his quality of life an placing him in the highest risk category for Sudden Unexpected Death from Epilepsy (SUDEP). We implore you to support this legislation because medical cannabis has been shown to be effective with most intractable and devastating cases of epilepsy where others are not (an upwards of 80% success rate in dramatically lowering seizures where the efficacy of every other intervention is almost zero).

Our friends have tried many treatments and now they are out of options and this bill is their only hope. Without this treatment, their son faces many medical risks, including premature death. This legislation is their last hope and a chance to save their son.

Signing this petition is not enough. Please contact your local representative and get this bill passed.

      I am a former Tennessee resident with many friends in the state. The son of one of my friends suffers from terrible seizures, often dozens of times a day. Research has found this treatment is the only treatment known to calm such seizures. Please recognize that this could save his life. Thank you.

      It will provide access to types of medical cannabis that are currently the only effective treatment for certain types of severe seizures in children.
