Kansas Cannabis Compassionate Care Bill - HB2330

House Bill 2330, the Kansas Cannabis Compassion & Care Act, has been reintroduced in the Kansas Legislature and referred to the House Committee on Health and Human Services. The measure seeks to enact legal protections for authorized medical marijuana patients and is similar to a proposal considered in the 2010 legislative session. House Bill 2330 will help to ensure that medical marijuana patients in Kansas will no longer have to fear arrest or prosecution from state law enforcement. As introduced, this act would allow qualified patients diagnosed with a “debilitating medical condition” to possess up to 12 cannabis plants (not including as many as 12 seedlings) and/or 6 ounces of marijuana for therapeutic purposes. The measure seeks to establish not-for-profit “compassion centers” to provide medical marijuana for patients in a safe, above-ground environment. According to a 2010 statewide poll of Kansas voters, nearly 60 percent of respondents support this measure. Currently, fifteen states -- Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington – and the District of Columbia have enacted laws protecting medical marijuana patients from state prosecution. Patients in these states enjoy legal protections to use medicinal marijuana under a doctor's supervision; seriously ill citizens in Kansas deserve this same protection. Please take two minutes of your time today to contact your state House member and tell him or her to support medical marijuana. If your Representative sits on the House Committee on Health and Human Service then it is especially important that he or she hears from you. Thank you for your support of NORML KS and our efforts to enact medical marijuana reform in Kansas.

      people need to realize theres 150+ medicinal uses for cannabis. you would be amazed at how many people really need it. Legalizing marijuana to those who qualify will decrease the number of dealers vastly. these dealers sell to kids that arent old enough to smoke and are the gateway to other drugs. pot isnt the gateway drug. the people you get it from are.

      Marijuana is been missunderstood, it has benifiets we realize now that we didnt in the pass. I believe it will benifiet ks. in taxes, help people medically, and lower the amount of money and people in jail and prison. I believe this is good for ks.

      I believe this bill is long over due to be passed into law. I so believe its good for the reasons stated in the bill. I do believe it would allow the state of Kansas to benefit financially in many ways; the tax revenue would be there. the prisons, jails, work releases would be less full wich of course would allow more money for more needed things then people in jail for such a helpful herb.

      I also believe there are many medical benifits to the drug. I know that i have very bad anxiety that's known to make me vomit if i dont have something for it. I find that the doctors medicine for my condition has many side effects. I find that i can take a few puffs of marijuana and wth in minutes i go from being full of anxiety to relaxing and fine.

      I also have back pain caused by my muscles being tense and tight wich pench on my bulging disc. I can achieve muscle relaxation from marijuana. I also benefit from marijuana in that i have a eating problem of not being hungry, marijuana will usually give me a appetiete. I also know other people who have conditions, wether its not being able to eat, pain, glocoma, etc.and all swear that marijuana helps there condition in one way or another.

      I do believe that it has good laws about not being near schools. I do believe this bill will be positive in so many ways. I believe it will lower the hard drug addiction and crime rate in kansas as its done in ALL other places. I support this Bill2330 and think that it should be passed for the benefit of kansas finacially, to help people medically, and to allow people not worry about going to jail for something that helps them. I approve this Bill 2330

      Marijuana has a place in our society, just as any other drug that is legal. Also, this is just a petition to get this on the ballot so we can vote for or against this legislation. By signing this petition we are not necessarily for or against this bill, we are just getting it out to the voters. Please get this on the ballot for a vote.

      I believe, as an Army JROTC cadet who swears to uphold the American Constitution, that all Americans have a fundamental right to healthcare and that the government should by all means provide relief for those going through pain through cancer treatment, AIDS, or whatever it may be.
