Tell Idaho Governor To Pass CBD Bill (Alexis’ Law)

marijuana cannabis idaho threeActivists are working very hard in Idaho to reform Idaho’s marijuana laws. That is not an easy task, as Idaho has more pro-reefer madness fans than most other states. I know this to be true because a big chunk of my family is from Idaho, and many still live there. Below is a call to action via New Approach Idaho and Idaho Moms for Marijuana. Please participate if you are able:

THIS IS AN ONLINE CAMPAIGN DIRECTED AT THE GOVERNOR OF IDAHO. PLEASE JOIN US IN DEMANDING REFORM OF IDAHO LAWS BY THE PASSAGE OF ALEXIS’ LAW.

CONTACT THE GOVERNOR TODAY!!

Although not legalization of any kind, Alexis’ Law (SENATE BILL 1146) is a good step forward for Idaho.

It is a stark contrast to the resolution the Legislature passed two years ago saying they would never allow Marijuana in Idaho FOR ANY REASON.

The bill has passed both the Senate and the House and is headed to Governor Otter’s desk.

It provides an affirmative defense for parents who choose to use CBD ONLY Cannabis oil for their epileptic children.

We will change the date of the petition frequently to keep this online event ongoing. This event will end the 22nd of April, or when Otter signs Alexis’ Law. If he vetoes it, we will do a non-violent, public, shame campaign to let him know just what we think. Keep an eye out for that if he vetoes it!

  • fully legalize it Idaho

    I think its pretty shitty that they are only willing to change this only for children with epalespy. I have epalepsy plus a number of other things that CBD and THC could help treat. I won’t support this its a pretty bogus step that only certain people with one illness can qualify for medicine when cannabis has more medicinal value then just epalepsy. Start a partition worth fighting about then just this. Include this subject plus expand more for everyone to have the opportunity that needs and chooses to use this medicine.

  • been there

    I know plenty of folks in Idaho that would be happy to support this but are unwilling (wisely) to come out publicly as they KNOW they will be targeted (Idaho is a police state – make no mistake about that!).
    When this can be put to a “anonymous vote” such as will happen in 2016 (if it is on the ballot), people will be more likely to vote for legalization (or at least decriminalization) in Idaho.
