Thank the Senate Cosponsors of the CARERS Act
The introduction of the CARERS Act by Senators Booker (D-NJ), Paul (R-KY), and Gillibrand (D-NY) is a historic moment in the medical marijuana movement. For the first time ever, we now have comprehensive medical marijuana legislation in the U.S. Senate. The bill would allow state programs to continue without federal inference, reschedule marijuana out of Schedule I, remove CBD from the scheduling, create access to banking services for legal marijuana business, end the Public Health service review process and NIDA monopoly that blocks research, and allows VA doctors to write recommendations in states that have a medical marijuana program.
Given the unprecedented nature of the bill, please take a movement to call Senators Gillibrand (D-NY), Paul (R-KY), and Booker (D-NJ) and thank them for bringing the issue of medical marijuana before the U.S. Senate.
Showing a Senate leader appreciation will help build a valuable relationship between these offices and the patient advocate community. This is the best way you can show your support.
Simply call the Congressional Switchboard (202-224-3121) and ask for the office of any of the bill sponsors!
