Urge Congress to Pass Comprehensive Medical Cannabis Legislation to Protect Patients


Cannabis therapeutics are helping millions of Americans, often where all traditional options have failed or as a safer treatment option. While state-level initiatives have demonstrated the potential of medical cannabis, the lack of federal laws and regulations poses challenges for patients, researchers, and medical practitioners, keeping cannabis treatments from reaching their full potential.

A national medical cannabis program would fill this void, ensuring uniformity in regulations, restoring rights for medical cannabis patients, creating nation-wide access for therapeutic use and research, and forging a new, purpose-built pathway for cannabis therapeutics.

Americans for Safe Access has developed a legislative framework for a national medical cannabis program that builds on the knowledge from the state level experiment, includes input from patients, regulators, researchers, medical professionals, medical cannabis providers and patient originations, and incorporates the experience of the 65 countries with federal medical cannabis programs. 

Send a letter to your federal representatives asking them to support medical cannabis patients by creating a national medical cannabis program.
