As required by state election law, Utah Patients Coalition is holding eight hearings throughout the state of Utah to collect public comment on the proposed citizens’ initiative petition, The Utah Medical Cannabis Act. On Wednesday, UPC held the first set of these public meetings in Salt Lake City, Lehi, and St. George. Additional events will take place Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  

Sharing powerful personal stories about how medical cannabis has significantly improved their quality of life, several patients made their case to a roomful of interested voters and took questions. Read more about the public forum that took place in Salt Lake City here.
