Kansans in support of House Bill 2198 The Cannabis Compassion and Care Act

To be delivered to The Kansas State House, The Kansas State Senate, and Governor Sam Brownback

Petition Statement

This Bill, if passed, would allow chronically ill Kansans to safely access medical marijuana. Diseases such as Crohn's Disease, Cancer, Diabetes, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain and many other conditions have been effectively treated with Medical Marijuana and suffered little to no negative side effects. Almost half of the states already have Medical Marijuana programs. Help us take Kansas into the 21st century! Marijuana is a very diverse plant and certain strains have very little THC(the psycho-active compound) but have an abundance of the CBDs or Cannabidiols. These CBDs have been proven through double-blind placebo studies to reduce inflammation and cause remission in people with Crohn's disease. The effects are so much safer than the current chemotherapy that will leave my 7-year-old possibly with Cancer (11% chance) or sterile. Please, I served my country as many of you have...it's time Kansas Government serves US!
There are currently 434 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

My daughter is 7 years old and suffers from Crohn's disease. She has to take a terrible drug that is actually a chemotherapy drug. It is harming her liver badly. I am an insulin dependent diabetic, disabled veteran of the USMC/Desert Storm veteran and registered nurse. Medical Marijuana is a much safer alternative and there are MANY legitimate studies to support this. It's time to join the rest of America. We need to take back our freedom. Don't be afraid to sign this petition. THE PEOPLE OF KANSAS HAVE SPOKEN. RECENT POLLS INDICATE 70% OF KANSANS WANT MEDICAL MARIJUANA! Not to mention the extra revenue it would generate for the GREAT STATE OF KANSAS!
