As a business owner, homeowner and taxpayer, I feel our taxes are needlessly wasted. Missouri’s law enforcement officers should spend their time focusing on real crime, not wasting resources on arresting and prosecuting marijuana users.
If Missourians have their doctors’ approval they should be able to use medical marijuana without fear of arrest. They should be able to rely on a safe supply of marijuana without having to resort to the dangerous criminal market.
Studies have shown that marijuana relieves debilitating symptoms including nausea, appetite loss and severe pain. The decision of what medicine is best for an illness should be left up to the patient and the doctor, not the government.
This is not a partisan issue. It is a compassion issue. Please show support for Missouri HB 277.
