There are suffering patients in every state that could possibly benefit from medical marijuana, and Indiana is no exception. That's why Indiana Senator Karen Tallian (D-District 4) introduced a medical marijuana bill that she is hopeful will get a hearing during the 2015 legislative session. The fight to legalize medical marijuana in Indiana will not be easy, but it's a cause worth fighting for nonetheless. Per Wish TV:
"I'd rather have decriminalization for everybody. But if I can't get that, I'm going to start here," Tallian said, referring to her new bill that would legalize medical marijuana.
The proposal has been filed and she's waiting to find out if it will get a hearing in the Senate Health Committee.
"I think there's a lot of compassion for people out there who have cancer, who have seizures, who have a whole variety of medical problems and we ought to not deny them whatever help they can get," she said.
Right now Senator Tallian is trying to get a hearing in Indiana's Senate Health Committee. If you live in Indiana, contact your Senators and let them know that you want this to happen. The Chairperson for Indiana's Senate Health Committee is Senator Patricia Miller. Her contact info is below:
