Support Compassionate Care in Alabama Today!

Support Compassionate Care in Alabama Today!

Dear Loretta,

We just learned that HB 206, the medical marijuana bill in Alabama, is coming up for a public hearing in the House Judiciary Committee tomorrow!

This is the first public hearing on HB 206, the Compassionate Care bill in Alabama. Legislators on this committee need to hear from you on this bill. They need to hear the message loud and clear that residents in Alabama support Compassionate Care.

The House Judiciary Committee is meeting on Wednesday, April 4, at 9 a.m. They will meet in the Alabama State House, Room 123. The State House is located at 11 South Union Street, Montgomery.

There are four things you can do right now to make sure this bill is passed out of the committee on Wednesday:

1. Send a message to the committee now, urging them to support medical marijuana.

2. Come testify at the Capitol on Wednesday in support of HB 206. The Committee members need to hear from Alabama residents about this important legislation. If you can come to testify, please email me directly at lorettanall@gmail.com. If you can’t come testify, but would like to submit testimony in support of the bill, please contact me by email or phone (212-613-8048) and we can prepare a testimony to submit to the committee on Wednesday.

3. Forward this action alert to five of your friends. Every time a person contacts legislators about HB 206, it increases the likelihood that the bill will pass!

4. Help us get in contact with sympathetic doctors and patients. This is especially important. If you know of a doctor or patients who support Compassionate Care, please contact me at gsayegh@drugpolicy.org or call 212-613-8048.

That’s it for now—remember, please send a message today, and forward this alert to five of your friends and family. With your support, we will pass HB 206 and win compassionate medical marijuana legislation in Alabama in 2007! For more information on HB 206, please see the bill text.

Did you see where Gov Richardson of NM has approved marijuana for pain patients?
