Mass Patients upcoming public meetings

A lot has happened since our last e-mail update.

See below for dates and location of upcoming meetings.

In the summer we organized impressive testimony about the medical marijuana proposal House Bill 625 and its twin Senate Bill 1161. Dozens of medical marijuana patients afflicted with severe chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, ALS, and other serious diseases and conditions testified to the committee about the need for safe access to what for many is a more effective medicine than other alternatives.

We were joined by representatives from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, AIDS Action Committee, ACLU, Mass. Bar Association, and medical experts. We also submitted testimony from doctors and the Mass. Nurses Association.

We've reached a new landmark in our campaign by demonstrating broad support among the public health community and the voting public for making Massachusetts the 17th medical marijuana state. Since the hearings we've been following up with each committee member to urge them to support medical marijuana reform. We hope the committee will soon take favorable action on our bills.

We invite you to join us at one of our next meetings to learn more about what we've been up to, what we're doing to make sure these bills are passed, what alternatives we have planned if the legislature fails to act, and how you can help.
