Dear medical marijuana supporter,
Next week, the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors will be conducting a hearing on the implementation of the statewide medical marijuana ID card program.
Once the voluntary program is made available, local patients will have the opportunity to obtain the ID cards through the county's Health Department. The program provides further protection from detainment, arrest or the seizure of medicine for those who choose to become cardholders.

Please email or call the following board members, politely urging them to direct staff to begin accepting applications for the ID cards. Feel free to use the sample email message, posted at the bottom of this communication.

Honorable Members of the Board of Supervisors,
I am writing you today to ask that you cast a vote directing the Public Health Department to implement the statewide medical marijuana ID card program in Tuolumne County.
The county's implementation of this program is a requirement of state law and it's the board's responsibility to ensure the county moves into compliance. Once the program is in place, the cards will be of great benefit to both patients and law enforcement in our county.
Local patients have already waited far too long for the county to comply with state law. I am counting on your vote to implement state law and protect the seriously ill from unnecessary arrest.
