Dominic and Shelley Gillen, whose son Will has a severe form of epilepsy, are hosting a drive through signing at their home in Bellevue on Saturday. “Nebraskans all across our state are suffering from debilitating conditions that could be alleviated from the use of medical cannabis. We the people need to have our voices heard loud and clear. I can’t think of a better way to do that than going out and signing the petitions this weekend at an event near you,” said Shelley Gillen.
Statewide Campaign Coordinator Crista Eggers, who also has a son with epilepsy added:
“It is amazing to see the grassroots momentum for medical cannabis. It evokes both excitement and empathy among Nebraskans, regardless of a person’s political background or beliefs. The people of this state overwhelmingly support this issue, and we won’t give up until the suffering have the necessary access to medical cannabis.”
