    Medical Marijuana Bill Awaiting House Floor Vote

    Last update: November 6, 2009

    After passing the Senate on May 27, SB 1381, the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, is awaiting a floor vote in the House. The measure was not brought to the House floor for a vote during the November veto session, but may still get a vote some time after the General Assembly reconvenes in January 2010 for the second half of the current session. MPP and our lobbyists and grantees, along with patients and House sponsor Rep. Lou Lang (D – Chicago), are working hard to remind legislators how important this legislation is to patients and their families in Illinois.

    Governor Pat Quinn’s spokesperson recently said that he will give “serious consideration” to a medical marijuana bill the legislature passes. However, the bill will not make it to his desk until we have 60 identified supporters in the House, and compassionate Illinois residents need to speak up to make that happen.

    Please send your representative an e-mail urging him or her to vote “yes” on SB 1381 when the time comes.

    After you’ve written your representative, please follow up with a call.

    With your help, Illinois could very well become the 14th state to enact an effective medical marijuana law, but we need as many people as possible taking action in order to make this a reality.

    One thing that will help move SB 1381 to the House floor is positive stories in the press. Please send a letter to the editor using the template we have provided.
