CARERS Act Petition House and Senate CARERS Act Petition

Sign the Petition to Ask Your Representative and Senators to Sign on to the CARERS Act!

Click here to print the petition and collect signatures in support of the CARERS Act.


The CARERS Act is the most comprehensive piece of federal medical marijuana legislation that has ever been introduced in both the U.S. House and Senate Introduced in the Senate by Senators Corey 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 inference, move marijuana out of Schedule I, remove CBD from the scheduling, create access to banking services for legal marijuana businesses, end the Public Health service review process and NIDA monopoly that blocks research, and allow VA 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. House and Senate.  Sign the Petition below to urge your senators and representative to protect safe access and patients right by signing onto the CARERS Act.

    Personally I’m getting tired of our so called representatives defying the will of the the people.

    I belive that medicinal marijuana should be out of schedule I, putting it on the same schedule as heroin and LSD even though it is known to help with a variety of illnesses is absurd. Marijuana can help a variety of people in many ways and allowing physicians to prescribe it to certain patients can greatly help the people in need as well as states with income.

    My son’s quality of life has suffered severely from highly addictive, dangerous, and destructive pharmaceuticals prescribed to him for epilepsy. It is criminal that he could not have been treated early on with cannabis, a much safer form of medicine that has been known for centuries as an anticonvulsant.

    I’m signing because I am a medical marijuana patient who has restrictions on medication that alleviates my symptoms enough to live a functional life. My parents are divorced, and my father lives in Florida. I am frustrated and concerned as to why medical marijuana is not allowed to be transported between states if other prescription drugs, with higher addictive properties, are. I hope that patients who feel relief from their medication can extend that relief to wherever life may take them; and, not feel anxiety or other symptoms from their medication being withheld from or illegal to use at certain places. A plane or car ride does not eliminate the need for medication, unfortunately.

    Get real guys, do your duty that you were elected for, to act on the wishes of the citizens you are “supposed” to represent. YOUR Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines are KILLING THEMSELVES at a rate that is unacceptable in ANY culture. Theses are the men and women that FREELY CHOCE to defend YOU!!! Step out of your political views and thoughts for just a moment and open your eyes and heart to the ones that are suffering, simply for defending each and EVERY American, including you. Clearly the Federal Government, specifically the VA’s approach is an EPIC FAILURE (suicides, lives lost/taken at a rate of 20-30 PER DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, PER DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) in the "treatment"of our Soldiers. How many lives are taken per hour, per day, per week, per month, or per year with marijuana? If it is, let’s say 1 per day, isn’t that a 2000%-3000% reduction?????? Now……Is it too much to ask for your compassion for YOUR DEFENDERS???? Get off of your ass, be PROACTIVE, and SAVE THE LIVES of the ones that have REPEATEDLY SAVED YOURS. Thank you for your time. GOD SPEED.

    The tides of change are coming, good can no longer be ignored, I will dedicate the rest of my life spreading education and providing HOPE to those in need, no matter where they live. State lines, laws and borders are but invisible barriers to providing safe access to a safe alternative. Please join our cause by volunteering or becoming a member!
