It’s time to act.
Over the past several months, families and patient advocates have been urging state legislators to approve a compassionate medical cannabis law in Nebraska. Now the time has come, and tomorrow, members of the Unicameral will debate and ultimately decide the fate of LB 474, which would legalize medical cannabis for patients with serious health conditions.
It’s critical that you take action now and contact your senator. You can use this online tool or look up your senator and their contact information on the Nebraska Legislature website.
It takes less than five minutes to leave a message with your senator’s office, and they welcome input from their constituents. Just a handful of calls could make the decisive difference in how they vote.
When you call, leave a short message with your name, where you live, and personal reason explaining why you think patients should not be criminalized for using medical cannabis to relieve suffering for a serious, debilitating health issue.
Children with epilepsy, veterans with chronic pain, and thousands of other patients could have the relief they deserve if Nebraska joins the 36 other states that have adopted compassionate medical cannabis laws.
Please don’t wait. Take action now and ask others to do the same.
