Quick update on the marijuana research bill: more action needed

Normally this would be a snoozer, as the previous Senate bill had strong bipartisan support.

So please contact your senators and urge them to support this bill, especially if your senator is a Republican. Again, the timeline is likely to be short, so act now!
