Texas Medical Marihuana - HB 1491 Stuck in Committee

******ACTION ALERT******

HB 1491 was referred to the Public Health Committee on March 2. As of today, it has not been granted a hearing. Without a hearing, it will never come to a vote in the full House.

A group of Veterans is waiting to testify.

Call Rep. Lois Kolkhorst, Chair of the Public Health Committee, and ask that a hearing be scheduled for HB 1491. Her office number in Austin is (512) 463-0600 and in Brenham is (979) 251-7888. You can also call the Public Health Committee Clerk at (512) 463-0806.

You might mention the fact that the Federal Government has admitted that cannabinoids are therapeutic. (see post about National Cancer Institute below.)

Texans are suffering. Doesn't Representative Kolkhorst have any compassion?
