Medical Cannabis

Greg Orman supports legalizing cannabis for medicinal use. It’s time for Topeka to wake up and put Kansans' needs ahead of the pharmaceutical industry.

This is a humanitarian issue. We shouldn't have people at their most vulnerable feeling like criminals. We shouldn't have people treating the effects of chemotherapy feeling like they're breaking the law.

Medical cannabis has been proven effective in treating the symptoms from conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, and arthritis, as well as pain management.

Greg will give providers authorized to prescribe Schedule II narcotics the freedom to prescribe marijuana as a tool to fight opioid dependence. Greg would also call for the passage of the Kansas Safe Access Act to allow Kansans to use legally prescribed medical marijuana. States that allow physicians to prescribe medical cannabis as part of pain-management protocols—and allow citizens to use it—see statistically lower rates of opioid use disorder.
