ACTION ALERT: HEARING ON HB1043
House Bill 11-1043 is this years' medical marijuana bill. It was introduced in the state legislature by Sen. Pat Steadman (D-Denver) and Rep. Tom Massey (R-Poncha Springs).

The bill designed to "clean up" some of the problems with the medical marijuana legislation (HB 10-1284) passed by the legislature last year. However, it fails to address any of the core issues facing patients, like privacy of medical information. CTI met with Sen. Steadman in January, and he refused to add any language to this bill that would protect patient privacy rights or to protect any other patient rights, saying such legislation "wouldn't pass". Click here to read the bill

Please contact all members of the House Judiciary Committee and Sen. Steadman and Rep. Massey and ask them to insert language to protect patient privacy.

Sample Letter to House Judiciary Committee
"I urge you to insert language into House Bill 11-1043 that will protect patient privacy. The Department of Revenue is forcing patients to give up their Constitutional right to privacy by requiring Medical Marijuana Centers to videotape and photograph patients as they purchase medicine and to keep track of all of that information in a database open to law enforcement on demand. Patients will not shop at MMCs if there privacy rights are not protected. Please help preserve confidential access to medical marijuana for all of Colorado's sick and dying patients."

We are urging you to CALL and EMAIL the House Judiciary Committee Members.
