  1. Please help to pass SR112 to study the medical use of medical marijuana. I suffer from chronic pain, glaucoma, and PTSD. I have read that my ailments might be helped with the use of medical marijuana. If not for me please pass the resolution to help people with cancer, HIV, M.S. Etc. Real Iowans are out their suffering and dying because our state has sat on their hands since 2010 when the Pharmacy Board recommended that medical marijuana be rescheduled for medical use. I am a 65 year old retired man who spent most of his life working in law enforcement and corrections. I am not a drug dealer or pot head. I believe Iowa needs to catch up with the other 21 states that have passed medical marijuana laws. Thank you for your attention.

    1. Judging from the lobbyist declarations on SR 112, it looks like everyone is out to lunch. Maybe its because its just a resolution for a study, but we desperately need to pass this resolution. This is exactly what the Iowa Board of Pharmacy told us to do in 2010 and the urgency is only getting stronger with crazy band aide solutions like SF 2360.
