Write Your Representative

Here is a sample letter for communicating with your legislator.Please edit and put in your own thoughts:

 

To The Honorable _____________,

As your constituent I urge you to support a medical marijuana bill for Texas. For thousands of years marijuana has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments and there are thousands of Texans who could benefit from using this medicine today. Eleven states have enacted laws allowing patients to use medical marijuana to relieve their suffering from debilitating diseases. Texas should include itself in that list. Patients should not be treated like criminals.

Many professional medical associations support the use of medical marijuana, including: the American Nurses Association; the Texas Nurses Association; the American Public Health Association, and the Academy of Family Physicians, just to name a few. At least one court, legislature and/or government agency in the United States has deemed marijuana a justifiable option in the treatment of: AIDS; glaucoma; cancer; multiple sclerosis; chronic pain and epilepsy.

Please consider using your influential position in the Texas Legislature to enact a law that protects seriously ill patients, who use medical marijuana with their doctor’s approval, from being arrested or incarcerated.

Sincerely,

Name
Address
