Recently, our medical marijuana bill SB1003
was introduced into the PA Senate. Yesterday it was assigned to the Public Health and Welfare Committee
, just as last session's SB1350 was previously.
Last time, we were never given a chance to hold a hearing or a vote in the Senate. This year, it is vital. As a physician, nurse, or patient who may benefit from the use of marijuana, will you take a few minutes to call the Chairperson of the PHW committee, Senator Patricia Vance, who is a Registered Nurse, and ask her specifically to schedule a hearing on SB1003, the Governor Raymond Shafer Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act?
Senator Vance may be reached in her District office at 717-975-1985
, and in her Harrisburg office at 717-787-8524
, between the hours of 9:00AM EDT and 5:00PM EDT, Monday - Friday.
We will be working diligently to increase the chances that Senator Vance will schedule a hearing, and every call that you and the thousands of other supporters like you make, the better the chances that this bill will actually be enacted this legislative session.
