You're Invited to Shadow Hearing for HB 1534 April 30th
Tuesday, 17 April 2007

  The response has been amazing. Many people have made calls, sent letters and personally gone into Chairman Dianne Delisi’s office to ask her to schedule a hearing for medical marijuana HB 1534. The public health committee aide in Chairman Delisi’s office told one medical marijuana patient that they had received more positive calls on this bill than any of the others in the committee. If you are one of the folks who took action, thank you so much!

Yet despite such overwhelming public support, Chairman Delisi continues to say the bill does not warrant a hearing.  Well, we are not going away. The voices of medical marijuana patients and their advocates will not be shamed into silence.

Please come to the Shadow Hearing for HB 1534 to lend support to the courageous people who will testify to the benefits of medical marijuana and call on Chairman Delisi to schedule a hearing by signing a pre-written postcard, or by bringing your own written testimony to be delivered the next morning. The hearing will be Monday evening April 30th, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Legislative Conference Center, room E2.002 in the Capitol (map).

Please plan on arriving by 6:45 pm and RSVP to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or give me a call at 512-659-1108 so we can be sure to accommodate everybody who will be attending.

Whether or not you can attend the hearing, please call Chairman Delisi’s office (512-463-0630) and ask the staff person to deliver the message that you are very disappointed in Chairman Delisi’s decision to block democracy, and you urge her to reconsider so patients voices can be heard.

Thanks again for taking action and hope to see you on the 30th!

Executive Director
