Your voice matters. Join advocates
across Missouri to help patients! 
People with intractable diseases need more choice in medicine. Instead of threatening to lock up suffering patients who turn to investigational treatments, we need to support Missourians' right to try experimental drugs that could ease pain or extend life.

▽ Urge your Representative to support patient rights
Missourians struggling with intractable diseases need more options, including medical cannabis. 

Imagine living every minute in pain because untreatable, malignant tumors are pressing against your organs; an investigational treatment might relieve your pain or extend your life, but a government agency won't let you try it because the treatment hasn't gone all the way through a decades-long regulatory process.

This is a reality for too many Americans. Thankfully, that reality is changing. States across the country are pushing back against a federal drug approval system bogged down in red tape. Since 2014, 36 states have joined Missouri in passing Right-to-Try laws and the U.S. Congress is expected to act on the federal Right-To-Try bill this year.

This year, a Missouri House committee overwhelmingly passed a new bipartisan bill sponsored by Republican State Representative Jim Neely. HB 1554 would expand our state’s Right-To-Try law to include medical cannabis. The state legislature is poised to act on this legislation in 2018.

  1. Call (573) 751-2151.
  2. Ask the operator to connect you with your state Representative's office.
  3. Urge your representative to support suffering patients' right to try experimental treatments, including medical cannabis.

▽ Ask your Senator to support farmer freedom
Allowing farmers the freedom to grow hemp would increase the availability of cannabinoids being studied in clinical trials. It would also boost Missouri's economy and reduce our dependence on China.

This year, the Missouri House of Representatives passed HB 170 but the Senate failed to act.

  1. Call (573) 751-2151.
  2. Ask the operator to connect you with your state Senator's office. 
  3. Urge your Senator to support farmers' freedom to grow hemp.

▽ Tell elected officials to get smart on crime
Missouri can no longer afford to put officers at risk in order to police victimless crimes. Our state needs to focus law enforcement resources on stopping the scourge of violent crime in our cities.

  1. Call (573) 751-2151.
  2. Ask the operator to connect you with your state Representative's office.
  3. Urge your Representative to focus on locking up violent criminals instead of nonviolent offenders.
