Federal Medical Cannabis Liaison

Dennis Moyers asked us to post an invitation for everyone to sign the petition "Federal Medical Cannabis Liaison" on

Hi friends! Thank you so much for your support. I hope that you will sign this petition in support of so many patients seeking alternative medical therapy. Please note that like any petition, signatures are not valid unless your name and address are included. Just like when you sign a petition in public, your name and address are needed to validate you as an American Citizen (and a registered voter, when appropriate). Please do not let this make you afraid to sign. This petition is promoting the creation of an enhancement of existing State Laws, and the representation of the many patients these current laws support. Thank you again, Sincerely, Dennis Moyers 11th Legislative District Democrats PCO & King County Democrats Committeeman, Renton WA Patient Advocate & an original Medical Cannabis Patient/WA State Public Speaker
