Sign the Petition to Ask Your Representative and Senators to Sign on to the CARERS Act! (National)
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. 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. Sign the petition to support CARERS today.

Growing Medical Cannabis is Not a Waste (Sacramento County)
Today is your last chance to take action! On July 28th 2015, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will vote on making Medical Cannabis cultivation a violation of drought restrictions, and fine violators $500.00 per day. Any prohibited cultivation = anything grown outside, or more than nine plants indoor. All of the Board voted yes in the preliminary vote on July 14th 2014.
