Use medical marijuana sales tax money for transplants

I am proudly pro-life — not only for the unborn, but also for those in need of life-saving medical treatment. Shouldn’t being pro-life apply to existing life, as well? As the Legislature works to comprise a balanced budget, I will support efforts to support life.
The amount of money needed is a small fraction in the overall budget picture. To the extent that funding remains an obstacle, may I suggest to the governor, my colleagues in the Legislature and to the public that we use a portion of “new money” from the millions that will be generated by the new sales tax on medical marijuana beginning this summer?
