Today, the House of Representatives passed a bill that would legalize medical cannabis in Kansas! The bill now moves to the Senate for consideration.
The bill lists 23 medical conditions that would qualify patients for the program, including PTSD and chronic conditions that cause “severe, persistent pain.” It was amended on the floor to include lupus as a qualifying condition as well. Unfortunately, however, smoking and vaping products would be prohibited.
There are just a few days left before the legislature adjourns its veto session. It’s critical your senators hear from you; ask them to stand with patients and support legalizing medical cannabis this year!
Patients who could benefit from medical cannabis should not have to wait another year to legally access it. Help make sure this is the year Kansas joins the majority of other states and establishes a medical cannabis program by reaching out to your senators and sharing this message with your friends and family.
