When Minnesota’s medical cannabis law passed in 2014, its list of qualifying conditions and modes of administration were among the most restrictive in the country — leaving behind huge numbers of patients and prohibiting raw cannabis. But, thanks to years of advocacy led by Sensible Minnesota, the program has steadily improved. Chronic pain, macular degeneration, PTSD, autism, and obstructive sleep apnea have been added through the petition process, and the legislature added whole-plant flower cannabis this year.
Please comment on one or both petitions to help the program continue to improve. To go the extra mile, forward this message to other Minnesotans who may be interested in raising their voices.
