Demand Unbiased Information About Medical Cannabis
| Marissa Valeri
There is no way we can have honest conversations with lawmakers about medical cannabis if the White House is organizing smear campaigns behind the scene. While the existence and reach of the Marijuana Policy Coordination Committee is unclear, one thing is certain; that the public should be entitled to neutral statistics and studies when it comes to cannabis, not those that are slanted in a negative manner.
To help promote a fair debate about medical cannabis, we ask you urge your Member of Congress to cosponsor the Marijuana Data Collection Act (H.R. 6495)which requires the Secretary of HHS to coordinate with the DOJ, DOL, and States (to the greatest extent possible) and direct the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to publish a biannual study on the health, safety, and economic effects of state legalized marijuana programs.
