Maria la France, mother of 12 year old epileptic Quincy, has made an easy to use form to allow Iowans to show their support for medical cannabis in 2014.
Click here to show your support. Below is a letter from Maria:
As you may know, I’m trying to obtain legal access to medical cannabis for Quincy’s seizures. I have proof that it will help him. Many people have asked if there is something they can do to help, and I have a solution that should only take a minute.
The form below allows you to make a statement about how you feel about a strict medical cannabis program, either for or against, or any concerns. You can state if you are a friend or family of someone like Quincy, and you can also raise any concerns you have. It’s time for a serious discussion with our legislators about a responsible medical cannabis program in Iowa.
Did you know the Iowa Board of Pharmacy held hearings and heard over 100 testimonials from patients and doctors and reviewed scientific studies and recommended the legislature to reclassify cannabis to schedule II, acknowledging it has medicinal value? I didn’t know that either! The legislators and the news pretty much ignored it except for a few reporters, and I was probably on vacation when the news came out, and I never heard about it.
Will you please take a quick moment and fill this out? People ask me what Quincy wants for Christmas. Well, he wants safe access to lab-tested medical cannabis. There will soon be a bill introduced similar to New Mexico’s bill for a strict program. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I hope to quit bugging people about this and go back to my regular life after this bill is passed this spring. Feel free to forward this.
