Late last week, Gov. Kim Reynolds vetoed HF 732, a bill that would have dramatically improved Iowa's medical marijuana program, including by allowing patients to use cannabis with the amounts of THC that works for them. The bill originally passed overwhelmingly in the House and Senate.
Patients in Iowa are suffering, and Gov. Reynolds has exacerbated their pain. It's inexcusable to withhold medicine that we know helps patients.
Contact Gov. Reynolds today and tell her "Shame on you for hurting Iowa patients!" You can shoot her an email through our automated system, or post to her Twitter or Facebook page. Remember not to say anything that is abusive, as that will only hurt our efforts.
After contacting the governor, email Speaker of the House Linda Upmeyer. Speaker Upmeyer refuses to bring the legislature back in session to override the governor's veto. Click here and tell Speaker Upmeyer to "Bring the legislature back to help Iowa patients."
Take action and then forward this email to your friends and family. It's time for Iowa to have a comprehensive medical marijuana program.
