unfortunately medical marijuana is not legal in kansas.

a bill was considered in the state legislature, but did not pass

you can write your local congress person to lobby for passing the pill

you may have to travel to other states like colorado to buy marijuana for use. Colorado is next door to you and medical and recreational use of marijuana is legal there.

are you able to get to colorado somewhere to buy there?
