Urgent!! MN Bill in Jeopardy

We NEED your help!! The medical marijuana bill is in jeopardy in MN. The bill's author Rep. Carly Melin tried to come up with a compromise this last weekend. The proposed changes would make our medical marijuana law the strictest in the nation. For example they removed the smoking and grow at home provisions, you can read the full list of concessions here:

Unfortunately these changes weren't enough to gain approval for the bill, so the bill is currently on hold. Unless Governor Dayton shows some compassion soon this could very well be the end of the bill this session!

What can you do?

Watch the two Dr. Sanjay Gupta CNN specials below.  They do a great job of explaining the medical marijuana debate:
