The legislature may schedule a public hearing on the medical cannabis bill soon — if you are a patient, a friend or family member of a patient, or a medical professional who would like to help support SB 711, please send us an email and let us know!
When the chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, Sen. Bill Rabon, introduced SB 711, the odds of passing medical cannabis legislation in North Carolina improved dramatically. The Senate appears to be taking this bill seriously, and it’s possible they could schedule a public hearing on it very soon.
If you are a patient in North Carolina who could benefit from medical cannabis, a friend or family member of a patient, or if you are a medical professional, a member of the clergy, or a law enforcement officer who supports medical cannabis legislation, we’d love to hear from you. Please email us and tell us a little bit about yourself so we can advise you on opportunities to support SB 711. It would be helpful if you could include your address and/or nine-digit zip code so we can determine who your state representative and senator are.
You can read a summary of SB 711 here. This bill would make North Carolina the 37th state to legalize medical cannabis.
If you haven't already done so, please write your elected officials today and urge them to support SB 711!
Please share this important message with your family and friends in North Carolina!
