Critical Hearing in Denver on MONDAY, JULY 20
On Monday, July 20, the Colorado Board of Health will hold a critical public hearing at which it will consider harmful changes to Colorado's medical marijuana law proposed by the Department of Public Health and Environment.
In particular, the board is considering a proposal to limit the number of patients a licensed caregiver can assist to five (5). Currently, caregivers in Colorado can assist however many patients need their help.
The proposed limit on caregivers would make it very difficult for many patients to find a suitable caregiver and maintain safe access to a reliable supply of their medicine.
Could you imagine going into a pharmacy to pick up a medication that your doctor recommended, only to have the pharmacist say, "Sorry, we can't help you because we're already helping five people?" If you agree that is crazy, please attend the hearing and showing your support for safe access to medical marijuana in Colorado.
