Tell Arizona senators to respect the will of voters
Arizona House has voted to approve a terrible bill, HB 2349, which would ban all
medical marijuana possession and use on college campuses. A vote could happen
as soon as today in the Senate!
Please contact your senator and tell him or her to vote “NO” on HB
this bill passes the Senate and is signed by Gov. Brewer, it would impose an
unreasonable restriction on card-holding patients who are otherwise protected
by Arizona’s medical marijuana law. The law already prohibits possession of
medical marijuana at primary and secondary schools, but banning medical
marijuana on college campuses is going too far!
bill’s sponsor, Rep. Amanda Reeve (R-Phoenix), ridiculously asserts that
Arizona colleges could lose federal funding if her bill doesn’t pass. Federal
funding has not been pulled from colleges in California, Colorado, or other
states that allow medical marijuana, so there is no reason to believe that
shielding Arizona is truly the motive behind the bill.
The Yuma Sun agreed,
editorializing that the proposed ban was based on “hazy reasoning” and urging
the legislature to reject Rep. Reeve’s bill.
your senator: Young adults with serious illnesses shouldn’t have to choose
between education and following a doctor’s recommendation.
