Mid-Session Update on Bill 5052 (Rivers Bill)…With House Email List

March 11, 2015 Green Xena

Well, we’re officially half-way through the legislative session, but still fighting to save medical cannabis until the gavel finally falls. Last week, the People for Medical Cannabis gathered at the capitol with other patients & supporters for Medical Cannabis Day of Unity on March 5th. Many attended the House public hearing to speak against bill 5052 but were disappointingly restricted by time limits & an obvious preference of speakers chosen by the powers-that-be. It’s no secret that Representative Eileen Cody, who is Chair of the House Committee on Health Care & Wellness (who held the hearing), has a grudge against patients & does not have our best interests in mind. Senator Ann Rivers, sponsor of bill 5052 and lapdog of the recreational canna-business lobbyists, has a lot of nerve calling this the “Cannabis Patient Protection Act”, given that it would destroy the voter-approved rights patients have had for 17 years. It’s utterly frustrating to feel ignored every way I turn and see those with ulterior motives misrepresent what is best for the poorest, sickest patients who can’t afford a trail of lobbyists.
