Dead again, Medical Marijuana

After 9 years at the State House, HB 2160 "an act to regulate the medical use of marijuana by patients approved by physicians and certified by the department of health" has been once again, stopped at the Health Care Committee. Twelve other reps have signed on to this bill, but once again, the leadership shows little sign of acceptance. One other good reason for the removal of DeLeo and all that follow him.

The chair of the committee, Jeffrey Sanchez, D 15th Suffolk is the culprit and should be ashamed of his lack of intelligence and compassion for the sick and dying. This has gone on to long in this State, while others like California reap the tax revenue generated from the sale of medicinal cannabis, the morons on the Hill continue to block this non toxic, historically proven medicine for perhaps as many as a million people in this State.

Some of you may know someone who has been told by their doctor to use cannabis, (off the record) and perhaps even been asked to find some for a family member or friend going through chemo or a host of other painful diseases.

If you are as disgusted with him as I, send the bastard a note.
