Call your Members of Congress to Support the CARERS Act!
July 22, 2015 | Geoff Marshall
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 DEA-mandated 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.
