California Campaign for Safe Access
The California Campaign for Safe Access is ASA's oldest state campaign. There are more legal patients, providers, and recommending physicians in California than any other state. Hundreds of thousands of patients have safe, reliable, and dignified access to medicine in the state, but significant challenges remain.
The mission of the California Campaign for Safe Access is:
- To monitor, implement, and improve medical cannabis law in California; and
- To protect and expand patients’ rights, using education, litigation, legislation, grassroots advocacy and direct support.
We are gearing for the 2015 and 2016 campaign right now. Check back soon for more information about statewide legislation, local campaigns, ending federal interference and intimidation in California, and representing the patients' interest in the debate about legalizing cannabis in 2016.
Join the conversation... Sign up today for the ASA California Campaign for Safe Access internet discussion list to talk with other activists and stakeholders about medical cannabis issues in the state.
You can choose how often you receive emails from the list, or just go online and read and respond when you want to.
