I'm a devout Christian. I've expressed my opinions about medical marijuana to members, pastors and theologians from different denominations and have found that the majority of Christians I've talked to support medical marijuana.
The Michael Phillips Compassionate Care Act, HB642, is being debated in the state Legislature. It would protect doctors who recommend and patients who use marijuana for medical reasons. Please contact the House Judiciary Committee and your representative and urge them to pass this bill.
