On Nov. 8, I will be voting to make Missouri the 26th state that allows state-licensed physicians to recommend medical marijuana to patients with serious and debilitating illnesses. I encourage all compassionate Missourians to vote for this common-sense ballot initiative. One basic value that all Missourians should support is allowing doctors and their patients to determine which medical treatments are right for them. As we stand now, legislators and bureaucrats are substituting their opinion for the clinical judgment of these health care professionals. Hundreds of thousands of Missourians are living, suffering and battling every single day with debilitating conditions that could be helped by medical marijuana. Missouri’s proposal would provide potential treatment and relief to Missouri patients who suffer from cancer, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, spinal-cord injuries, and other serious or debilitating medical conditions and give doctors an alternative treatment to opiates and other pharmaceuticals. Only those patients whose physicians certify in writing that they have a legitimate and serious medical need would be allowed to purchase medical marijuana under this proposal. The measure would maintain the prohibition of marijuana use in public and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of marijuana. As part of the proposal, the small tax paid on medical marijuana and the fees associated with obtaining cultivation or dispensary licenses would fund veterans’ health care services in Missouri. Now is the time for the Show-Me State to properly restore doctors and their patients to the center of the medical treatment decision-making process. Please join me this fall in supporting this very critical issue. Sign the form below to show your support.
