ASA’s Executive Director, Steph Sherer was recently featured in an article in the Czech edition of Newsweek. The article documents Steph’s inspirational journey as a medical marijuana patient turned advocate. The writer chronicles her founding of Americans for Safe Access, and her more recent international endeavors with the International Medical Cannabis Patient Coalition working on international cannabis rescheduling through meetings with the United Nations and her co-launching of the International Cannabis and Cannabinoid Institute (ICCI) in the Czech Republic.
This article has been translated into English, and it is well worth the read as it not only relates Steph’s accomplishments, but provides background to the 4th Annual National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference: A Conference on Harmonization of Global Cannabis Policy and Action, which is being held in DC March 18-22nd. The conference truly is a culmination of all the efforts Steph has poured her energies into since founding ASA thirteen years ago.
As part of the conference, hundreds of patients, advocates, and other stakeholders will be meeting with members of Congress about Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act with hopes of passing this comprehensive medical cannabis legislation. Attendees will also make their mark on history by participating in peer-reviewing a document which will be submitted to the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS 2016) on drug policy which will be held in April.
Read the fully translated article and register for the 4th Annual National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference to share this exciting moment in history with Steph and hundreds of other courageous and inspiring medical cannabis advocates.
