There is a bill currently in the NC House of Representatives to put the issue of Medical Marijuana on the November ballot. H1161 currently languishes in the Judiciary Committee under the control of Rep. Leo Daughtry (R-Johnston). The much-maligned marijuana plant’s use for alleviating suffering is well enough documented that 23 states have legalized its use. According to several poles, 68 percent of North Carolinians approve of legalizing marijuana for medical purposes.
I urge you to contact your representatives and Rep. Daughtry urging them to move this bill out of committee and support its passage. Allow the people of North Carolina to vote on this crucial issue. Daughtry can be reached at 919-733-5605. Find your representative at www.ncleg.org and call.
Time is important to the very many citizens who are suffering from conditions this plant could relieve.
