Join Washington, DC Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton in Urging HUD to Stop Evicting Cannabis Patients!

On May 25, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC) introduced HR 3212 - the Marijuana in Federally Assisted Housing Parity Act of 2021. This important legislation would protect patients in federally subsidized housing from eviction for cannabis possession or use. Beyond just introducing the bill, Delegate Holmes Norton even sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requesting that HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge change the Department’s policy to stop evicting patients who rely on cannabis to treat their health!

With 4.6 million Americans relying on federal support for housing, with the largest population of federally-subsidized housing tenants being seniors, ASA thinks it is far past time for HUD to stop evicting these tenants for using cannabis medicine to treat their health. Especially with 36 states having reformed their laws to allow cannabis access and treatment for patients. If you think so too, please use ASA’s HUD campaign page to tell Secretary Marcia Fudge to stop evicting patients, and use the form below to urge your member of Congress to cosponsor HR 3212 today!
