CA Discrimination Survey
Voters in California legalized medical cannabis use and cultivation when they approved the Compassionate Use Act of 1996 (Proposition 215). However, patients still face pervasive discrimination when it comes to employment, housing, parental right, and equal access to healthcare.
Americans for Safe Access (ASA), the nation’s leading medical cannabis patients’ advocacy organization, collected data from 176 responders about discrimination against legal medical cannabis patients, primary caregivers, and providers to help educate lawmakers and regulators. Our hope is that this information will help create better laws and regulations to prevent medical cannabis discrimination in the future.
The survey closed on February 26, 2015. Preliminary results will be posted hear later this year. Look for an expanded survey in support of our efforts to adopt legislation protecting legal patients from discrimination later this year.
