Medical Marijuana Bill Introduced in Kansas

Feb 16, 2017 , , , , , , , ,

A proposal to make Kansas the 29th medical marijuana state has been introduced by Senator David Haley (D-Kansas City), and it’s supported by local advocacy group Bleeding Kansas. SB 155, the Kansas Safe Access Act, would allow seriously ill Kansas residents with certain qualifying conditions to access medical marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation.

Sixty-eight percent of Kansans believe that marijuana should be legal for medical purposes. There are a multitude of studies that show that medical marijuana can help patients suffering from cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and other devastating conditions. These patients should not have to wait any longer or risk jail time to access treatments that may help them.

If you are a Kansas resident, please contact your lawmakers and urge them to support this sensible legislation.

  1. I have had Epilepsy for almost 30 years. No medicine takes care of the type of seizures I am having. I have been through brain surgery and that didn’t even help. Medical marijuana is my last hope for a normal life. I am not in this to get high. I want to get better and be able to take care of myself without relying on others. This would possibly take me off of Disability and make it where I can work a full time job. I am willing to take that risk for the chance of a normal life.
    Please! Make this possible!!!
