For the fourth straight year, Sen. Deborah Dawkins (D-Pass Christian), a compassionate legislator, has introduced medical marijuana legislation. S.B. 2252 would authorize the doctor-recommended medical use of marijuana for patients with debilitating medical conditions and reschedule marijuana to Schedule II.

An excerpt from an article by WLBT:

“It’s something that seems very unfair that we in Mississippi provide this medicine, that’s what it is, it’s medicine, for people in other states and not in our very own,” said Dawkins.

“I don’t want anybody to get sick and I don’t want anybody to lose a family member or a friend but if and when that happens, the road runs out for all of us, I want people to be able to have options to leave this world in a better place,” said Dawkins.

The bill is currently in a senate judiciary committee and although Dawkins knows it’ll be tough to get passed, she says she’ll keep trying.
