Minnesota committee hearing tomorrow — come support medical marijuana patients

Tomorrow [Editorial note: it is today actually, Tuesday April 10th], the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear testimony on S.F. 345, a bill to protect medical marijuana patients from arrest and prison. It is imperative that we have as many supporters at the Capitol as possible to show their support for this sensible legislation. If you can make it to the Capitol tomorrow, have questions, or would like additional information, please contact Rick Kelley in our Minnesota office by calling (612) 326-6690, ext. 801. If you are coming tomorrow, please remember to dress and act professionally.

WHEN: Tuesday, April 10 at 3:00 p.m.
WHERE: Minnesota Capitol Building, Room 112, 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul.
RSVP: Rick Kelley, (612) 326-6690, ext. 801

Even if you can’t make it tomorrow, you can still influence your legislators to support medical marijuana legislation this year. One of the most important things you can do right now is write a letter to the editor of your local papers in support of S.F. 345. It is imperative that lawmakers see examples of the widespread, statewide support this sensible legislation enjoys. While we have provided talking points for you to craft your letter, please try to personalize your letter as much as possible — a personalized letter is always more likely to be printed than a form letter. You can also check out some of the material in our library.

If you have not done so already, please also take a moment to send a letter to your state legislators. We have several form letters available to get you started, but please take a moment to personalize your letter before sending it to your legislators.

Our medical marijuana bills in both the House and the Senate are moving forward and could have floor votes in both chambers very soon. The Senate Health, Housing and Family Security Committee already passed S.F. 345, and the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear testimony on it tomorrow. Additionally, H.F. 655, the companion bill to S.F. 345, has cleared the House Health and Human Services Committee and the Public Safety and Civil Justice Committee, as well as the Health Care and Human Services Finance Division.

The momentum is clearly behind our bills. Please help maintain it by coming to the Capitol tomorrow.

Thank you for supporting the Marijuana Policy Project. Please pass this message along to friends, family, neighbors, and e-mail lists so that others can stand up for Minnesota's most vulnerable residents as well.
