Call your Members of Congress to Support the CARERS Act!

The CARERS Act is the most comprehensive piece of federal medical marijuana legislation ever introduced in both the U.S. House and Senate. Introduced in the Senate by Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and in the House by Representatives Steve Cohen (D-TN) and Don Young (R-AK), the bipartisan legislation would remedy the state-federal conflict over medical marijuana laws.

The bill would allow state programs to continue without federal interference, move marijuana out of Schedule I, remove CBD from the scheduling, create access to banking services for legal marijuana businesses, eliminate the Public Health service review process and NIDA monopoly that block research, and allow Veterans Affairs doctors to write recommendations in states that have a medical marijuana program.

For the first time ever, we have comprehensive medical marijuana legislation in both the U.S. Senate and House. Please call your two Senators and your member of Congress today to ask for their support.

Below are links for sample scripts. You can find the contact for representatives here

Tell President Obama his next DEA Administrator should match your position on medical cannabis - Americans for Safe Access

Under Leonhart, the DEA raids against state-legal medical cannabis dispensaries and cultivators skyrocketed. Leonhart also proved to be a roadblock to marijuana rescheduling, and was a vocal supporter of escalating drug war violence.

Thank the Cosponsors of the Senate CARERS Act - Americans for Safe Access

The introduction of the CARERS Act by Senators Booker (D-NJ), Paul (R-KY), and Gillibrand (D-NY) is a historic moment in the medical marijuana movement. For the first time ever, we now have comprehensive medical marijuana legislation in the U.S. Senate. The bill would allow state programs to continue without federal inference, reschedule marijuana out of Schedule I, remove CBD from the scheduling, create access to banking services for legal marijuana business, end the Public Health service review process and NIDA monopoly that blocks research, and allows VA doctors to write recommendations in states that have a medical marijuana program. 

Given the unprecedented nature of the bill, please take a movement to call Senators Gillibrand (D-NY), Paul (R-KY), and Booker (D-NJ) and thank them for bringing the issue of medical marijuana before the U.S. Senate.

Showing a Senate leader appreciation will help build a valuable relationship between these offices and the patient advocate community. This is the best way you can show your support.  

Simply call the Congressional Switchboard (202-224-3121) and ask for the office of any of the bill sponsors!
