Tell Senator Grassley to Give the CARERS Act a Vote Tell Senator Grassley to Bring CARERS to a Vote

Right now the CARERS Act, the most important piece of legislation addressing medical cannabis is being held up by Senator Chuck Grassley. Senator Grassley needs to hear from medical cannabis patients and caregivers who can tell him how important it is that we pass the CARERS Act.

 

 

Dear Senator Grassley,

The passage of the the bipartisan Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act (S. 1374) would allow state medical marijuana programs to continue without federal interference, remove the marijuana compound Cannabidiol (CBD) entirely from the schedule, eliminate the DEA-mandated “NIDA-monopoly” that prevents researchers from obtaining marijuana for clinical studies, and allow Veterans Health Administration physicians to write recommendations in states that have established a medical marijuana program.

Not allowing this piece of legislation a vote, is blocking the democratic process, and going against the 93% of Americans who want medical marijuana to be available as a treatment option. As an American citizen, I ask that you allow the CARERS Act a vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sincerely,

    How can a plant God made be illegal like heroin? Are you going to deny Vets with PTSD this healing plant?

    I am so grateful to Mr.Rick Simpson for providing me with Hemp oil here in the United State of America. I was diagnose with cancer of the Breast 8 months ago, and ever since then i have done a lot of Chemo and Radiation that have not helped issues, but only damaged my immune system and frustrated me. I came across the Phoenix Tears and i have read about the Hemp oil a lot and saw the Post that Mr Rick Simpson could provide me with Hemp Oil i thought it was a joke , until in good faith i contact him for the procurement of this medication,the medication was procured and and to my surprise it was delivered within 2 days and i have completed the treatment for the past 3 months.I am here to let every one know that am no longer a cancer patient, I have experience a total change in my health, with Mr Rick Simpson Hemp oil service.I will like to advice any cancer patient that live in the America region and Europe at large, The Rick Simpson Oil cures and i will also like you to have his contact if you are interested to cure your cancer….Ricksimpsoncancercure1@gmail.com

    I’m disabled & have been cut on my pain meds & I’d like to be able to try medical marijuana to have a better quality of life because now I’m bedridden with the cuts, needing caretakers & it makes me angry, depressed, I feel disrespected, humiliated, hopeless, helpless knowing I used to be able to shower by myself but now can’t, cook n clean for myself but can’t now. It’s not fair the government dictates how much pain we must live in. Thank you for your time and consideration. Have a blessed day.

    Respectfully

    Vets with PTSD say it helps them better than anything else. Talk to them. “Charlotte’s Web” is a strain that stops seizures in children. You can find marijuana is on the list of legal medications in Israel. In state senior facilities the seniors choose marijuana for their pain 75% to 25%.

    Retired, disabled permanently by VA and SSDI. So called legal drugs make my PRSD worse. Since becoming a medical Cannabis patient I’ve stopped three so far.

    Alcohol and prescription drugs are more dangerous and make people do dumb stuff. Cannabis calms and mellows and makes me smile and laugh which family thought I forgot how to do!

    We (Veterans) continue dying as politicians continue to line their pockets with their own agenda. Stop thinking about yourself and what you believe. Voters need to turn out for next election in my opinion. Thanks

    Please help those in pain who would get much need relief from this. I have a friend who has terminal cancer who has no appetite. This could benefit him and others like him.

    I will sign, have compassion for the people suffering. Stop putting people in prison for pot, it is not right to ruin their lives over choice. This is a natural god given medication for Iowans too, suffering from pain and cancer, children suffering from seizure, they would rather cut into their brain or let them die. Come on! how sad. I have a brother suffering from cancer treatment damage, it is so wrong! I myself suffer from constant pain from car accidents, none of them being my fault, people not paying attention to their driving. No insurance ever were held responsible for my medical problems. You could say my heart is bitter from the laws in which they have put upon us, Iowa need safe access to this medication. My heart breaks for people suffering, why don’t you all care. It is all about big drug co. running our lives, this is so wrong!
