Governor Mark Dayton is holding up the medical marijuana bill in Minnesota because he is worried it will upset his friends in law enforcement. This is simply unacceptable.
Please sign our petition calling on Gov. Dayton to show some backbone and get this important legislation passed. Seriously ill Minnesotans deserve legal access to medical marijuana.
Rep. Carly Melin temporarily pulled her medical marijuana legislation, HF 1818, from the House Government Operations agenda this week after her good faith efforts to compromise with law enforcement fell on deaf ears. Gov. Dayton has said he will only support a bill that has law enforcement officials’ approval, but they have steadfastly refused to support workable medical marijuana legislation.
Help us send Gov. Dayton a message. Tell him to stand up for patients and stop catering to law enforcement's unreasonable demands and stalling tactics.
Please stop holding up Rep. Carly Melin's bill, HF 1818, which would allow people with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, and PTSD to use medical marijuana if their doctors recommend it.
Rep. Melin has engaged in good faith efforts to compromise with law enforcement officials, but they have steadfastly refused to support workable medical marijuana legislation.
It's time to show some backbone. Please stop catering to law enforcement's unreasonable demands and stalling tactics, and stand up for seriously ill Minnesotans who would benefit from medical marijuana.
