*URGENT - URGENT - URGENT - URGENT - URGENT*

CALL THE SENATE HHS COMMITTEE!!!
*We need to defeat SB109* in Committee. If we do, this may stop the onslaught of other bills coming from law enforcement. If SB109 passes, it may be the beginning of the end for patients' safe access to their medicine in Colorado, as more and more restrictive bills will be introduced.

Senate Health and Human Services Committee
Hearing on SB109
Wed., Jan. 27, 2010

Approx. 10:00 a.m.
(upon adjournment of the full Senate)
Old Supreme Court Chambers

State Capitol Building

For last-minute updates and changes, call the Bill Room:
(303) 866-3055

Please show up early to testify against this bill. SB109 is bad for
patients because it:
- Raises the costs to patients by requiring extra exams and recordkeeping
- Raises the costs to patients by not allowing their previous medical
history to be used to determine whether they would benefit from medical marijuana
- Restricts the rights of patients to use their own doctor
- Allows a Medical Review Board to override the decision of a qualified physician that someone under 21 might benefit from the use of medical marijuana.
- Is discriminatory, because no other medicine in the state is regulated so harshly

Rob Corry's Analysis of SB109

Rob Corry's Spoof of SB109 replaces the term "medical marijuana" with the word "abortion" to show how discriminatory the bill is.
