Urgent Need to Address Medical Cannabis Patient Needs in Recreational Adult-Use Markets


To help policymakers avoid damaging their existing medical cannabis program while adding adult-use laws into their state, we have created the Medical Cannabis Equity Checklist: Legislative Strategies to Address Medical Cannabis Patient Needs in Recreational Adult-Use Markets. This briefing guide provides lawmakers and regulators with sample legislative language and policy they need to protect their medical cannabis programs while still adopting recreational adult use cannabis programs. The Medical Cannabis Equity Checklist provides essential provisions that must be included in these laws and regulations to ensure that patients remain protected and prioritized.

It is our hope that state lawmakers will review this report and use it to shape their adult-use program. However, we need your help to make sure they see it! Use our template email below to send this report to your state lawmakers to help make sure that patient access is factored in as your state reforms cannabis law. Let them know that you care about safe access for patients and that patients must continue to be part of the conversation!
