Vote Medical Marijuana
While it may feel like medical cannabis will soon be an option worldwide, on the ground, medical cannabis access is still far from reality for many patients. In addition to DC, the four U.S. territories, and the 33 states that are commonly recognized as having viable medical cannabis laws, another 14 states have adopted laws that only allow the possession of certain cannabis oil extracts rich in CBD. However, due to unnecessary restrictions in state regulations and laws, continued discrimination, and costs, many patients across the country, even in states with robust medical cannabis programs, are still without safe or legal access.
With the 2020 presidential election upon us, the future of medical cannabis legalization depends on you and your vote! At the state level and at the federal level, it is imperative to vote for legislators that are in favor of moving cannabis policies forward. The upcoming 117th congress will have our best opportunity yet to enact federal medical cannabis laws. Your votes can help keep existing allies in office and bring new advocates in but to pass those laws we will not only need champions in the House and the Senate but also support in the White House. With the 2020 presidential election upon us, the future of medical cannabis legalization depends on you and your vote!
