The Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on LB 474 this Wednesday. Click here to contact your senator and follow the steps below to take action!

Earlier this year, Sen. Anna Wishart introduced LB 474, which would establish a well regulated, compassionate medical cannabis program in Nebraska for patients with serious health conditions. This Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. CT, the Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the bill.

It’s critical that supporters of medical cannabis take action now to support passage of this legislation to help seriously ill patients. Here’s how you can help:

  1. Click here to email and call your state senator and urge them to support LB 474.
  2. Visit the legislature’s webpage for LB 474, click “Submit Comments Online for LB 474,” and write a short statement in support of the bill. Each senator will see how many supportive comments are submitted from constituents in their district.
  3. Write a position letter on the bill and email it to judpl@leg.ne.gov before 12 p.m. CT tomorrow. Click here for more details on writing and submitting position letters.

You can tune in and view the Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, too. The event will be streamed live on this webpage.

Patients and their families are counting on you and other Nebraskans to urge their state senators to pass LB 474. Please take action now and forward this email to others so they can take action, too.

Thank you.
