Colorado Governor Rejects the Bill For Medical Cannabis for Autism Treatment - I Love Growing Marijuana
Monday, Jun 11, 2018

Even though Colorado is known all across the country as the most progressive cannabis state, but it is not quite true as it is said that the devil is in the details. John Hickenlooper, the state governor, who is soon to leave the office, has vetoed another cannabis legalization bill. Hickenlooper is infamous for killing many cannabis bills of late.

In his latest vetoing activity, he disallowed the house bill 1263. The bill was intended to allow the therapeutic use of cannabis for the minor and adult autism patients of the state. While adults over 21 can adjust their medical doses by obtaining adult-use cannabis, the main affectees of the rejection of this bill will be the child patients.

Experts had already indicated that Hickenlooper would veto the bill 1263. For this reason, Colorado chapter of Mothers Advocating Medical Marijuana for Autism (MAMMA) started a campaign to convince the governor to sign the bill in advance. They even carried out a rally to plead the governor to keep in mind the troubles of families with children suffering from autism. However, to no avail, the governor rejected the bill. It is important to know that Hickenlooper has rejected eight bills this year so far.
