This #GivingTuesday, Show-Me Cannabis released the first commercial in the state of Missouri advocating for medical marijuana reform. The video, entitled “Guilty,” is now available for online viewing on the crowdfunding website for nonprofits,, where the organization is also raising $100,000 in support of its 2016 efforts to pass a medical cannabis law in Missouri.

KAOH Media and Forever An Astronaut co-created and produced the thirty-second video featuring local actors on a set mimicking police mug shots. Each person in the video admits guilt for using cannabis to medicate various ailments and pains, such as epilepsy and chemotherapy.

“2016 is going to be pivotal year for medical marijuana laws in Missouri. We feel this video really grabs viewer attention, provokes thought, and encourages education about the issue,” stated John Payne, Executive Director of Show-Me Cannabis.

Show-Me Cannabis is supporting an initiative to legalize access to marijuana for medical purposes with the approval of a physician, which was filed by the campaign committee New Approach Missouri.  The organization will also support legislative reforms to create patient access to medical cannabis during the upcoming legislative session.

Interested supporters can view the video or donate to the cause starting Dec. 1 at V

About Show Me Cannabis

Show-Me Cannabis is an association of organizations and individuals who believe that cannabis prohibition is a failed policy, and regulating cannabis would better control the production, distribution, and consumption of cannabis than the current criminal market system does. It seeks to engage Missourians in a serious, public discussion about the issues associated with the medical cannabis, industrial hemp, public safety and financial analysis in order to address problems associated with the current, failed policy.
