The bill has been stuck in the House of Representatives ever since.On March 14, 2016, the House is finally scheduled to begin debate on SB 3. If you live in Pennsylvania, please visit http://www.mpp.org/C4C to contact your representative and tell them not to keep patients waiting. Ask them to vote YES on SB 3.

For more than two years, a remarkable group of Pennsylvania advocates has been fighting for seriously ill patients to have access to medical cannabis, a safe and effective treatment option. Last month, patients and their loved ones gathered in the Capitol rotunda to tell the House of Representatives that they were sick of waiting for the House to act. Days later, Majority Leader Dave Reed announced S.B. 3 will finally be brought to the House floor for consideration on March 14.

If you are a Pennsylvania resident, please call your representative to ask him or her to vote yes on S.B. 3

Check out this new video filmed that day in Harrisburg! Hear directly from these incredible advocates about why they can’t wait any longer.

  1. I am a liver transplant (Wilson Disease)
    from Oregon arriving in Doyleston in 2016. I had a genetic clot to the frontal brain and have muscular degenerative disc disease. How could I help out?

  2. That was a very powerful video!!! You would almost have to be a robot (or an elected official in the pocket of a big pharmaceutical company) to not be extremely effected by this!!! If democracy still prevails in this country these patients should have access to THEIR choice of medicine!!

  3. What is going on in WI??? Please help people with MS. Marinol 2.5 or 5mg is not an answer for me 100% synthetic THC and no cbd for a MS patient who also has high BP. Cannabis is my only pain med that works, along with 10mg Valium to lower my BP and relax my muscle spasm’s
    I have experienced way too many overdose symptoms,from opiates, and various pain meds, lidocaine and morphine infusions,nausea, not eatting at all. I went from 97# to 117# today. It took me 3 days to detox on my own, also 5 days in the hospital. Feeling worse when I got out because of morphine, opiates, etc. This has been the last 3 years of my life. I started vaping in April 2015.
