Representative Sherry Jones Todd intends to reintroduce legislation to protect patients who engage in physician authorized marijuana therapy.
According to a December 2012 CBS News nationwide telephone poll of 1,100 adults, 83 percent of Americans favor allowing doctors to authorize specified amounts of marijuana for patients suffering from serious illnesses.
Since 1996, eighteen states and the District of Columbia have approved legislation allowing for the use of cannabis therapy by qualified patients.
Please take time today to contact your state legislator and urge him or her to support allowing for the medical use of marijuana by qualified patients. For your convenience, a pre-written letter will be e-mailed to your elected official when you visit NORML's 'Take Action Center' here:
NORML will continue to update you in the coming weeks as this proposal moves forward. You can get further information on this measure from Tennessee NORML.
