Binghamton, NY – Apr 19, 2010 –
MarijuanaDoctors.com the nation’s first online search and booking platform for medical marijuana evaluations, is proud to announce its sponsorship of a pro-medical billboard on behalf of NY Patients First—a patient advocacy organization working to support safe, legal access of medical marijuana for seriously-ill patients in New York State. The billboard is the first of several to be unveiled around the state to help highlight the urgency of the medical marijuana legislation currently pending in the State Senate.
“MarijuanaDoctors.com is committed to helping first class organizations such as NY Patients First change Medical Marijuana legislation and give seriously ill patients access to the medicine they need,” said Jason Draizin, the CEO of MarijuanaDoctors.com. “This billboard sends a powerful message that seriously ill patients in the state of New York are in dire need of safe access to their medicine.”
The billboard, which was unveiled in Binghamton on Front Street near Clinton Street and the railroad tracks, illustrates the current situation of seriously-ill patients being forced to purchase their medicine from criminals who sell pot on the black market. The billboard features the NY Patients First website (http://nypatientsfirst.org), and depicts the image of a woman in front of a rundown home with the caption: “This is her pharmacy. Medical Marijuana: It’s Time, NY.”
“We hope these billboards will demonstrate to the public why passing legislation to give patients safe, legal and regulated access to medical marijuana is such an important, urgent issue. People need to contact their State Senators and tell them to support S. 4041-B to give the sick legal access to medical marijuana,” said Evan Nison, a Director of NY Patients First. “Donations from companies like MarijuanaDoctors.com are integral for raising awareness for these important issues—this billboard likely wouldn’t have been possible without their support.”
