I am having another live Google Hangout tonight to talk about medical cannabis bills and what is coming up next year. Join me at 7:00 PM tonight, July 24, at this web address:
We will be talking about bills that deal with regulating doctors and commercial medical cannabis activity (SB 1262), the return of wrongfully-confiscated property (SB 1193), and equal access to health care for legal medical cannabis patients. A Google Hangout is an interactive event you can join from your computer or mobile device.
We need to talk tonight, because I need to see you in Sacramento in eleven days. Medical cannabis patients, cultivators, providers, and others are coming to Sacramento for ASA’s CA Citizen Lobby Day on Monday, August 4, to talk about bills that will affect our community for years to come. We expect important committee votes on medical cannabis bills within a few days of the lobby day – maybe that same week. We need to make a strong showing to amplify the voices of advocates at a strategic time in the legislative process.
California Senator Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) will talk to lobby day attendees on Monday morning, and we will have a VIP reception that evening to honor Assembly Member Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), a champion for medical cannabis patients in the state legislature. Senator Correa and Assembly Member Ammiano are co-authors of SB 1262, a bill that seeks to better regulate doctors who recommend medical cannabis and commercial medical cannabis activity in the state. This is a chance to hear directly from the co-authors about this controversial bill.
Research shows that ordinary citizen lobbyists like you are six times more effective than paid lobbyists. Don’t miss your chance to influence the future of medical cannabis in California.
Let’s talk tonight at 7:00 PM, and work together in Sacramento on Monday, August 4.
