Medical Cannabis Bill Will Be Heard In Illinois Today


Representative Lou Lang's medical cannabis bill, HB 01, will be heard in Springfield today, Wednesday, March 6th and you can help get it through the Human Services Committee! The Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act will finally provide the framework for a medical cannabis program in the state of Illinois, providing a system for access and strong patient protections.

It'd be great if you can make it to the hearing today to testify in favor of the bill. Testimonials from patients and advocates can go a long way in persuading committees to vote favorably.
