Medical marijuana patient advocacy group Americans for Safe Access is running a new 30-second commercial in Detroit, starting this Sunday, encouraging politicians to complete an ASA survey that will educate voters about where the politicos stand on the medi-pot issue.

"We want to better educate supporters and the general public about casting their ballot for candidates who have their best interests in mind," said ASA Executive Director Steph Sherer. "We hope this outreach effort will show our country’s leading politicians how significant medical marijuana is to their election campaigns." The "Vote Medical Marijuana" campaign will also include an interactive online tool at, which provides voting records and a report card for each Member of Congress. Responses to the latest surveys will be added to the site by October 16th.

ASA has a handy score card so you know how current politicos are representing Michigan when it comes to medical marijuana. Lengendary John Conyers scores a "B," as does current senate shoo-in Gary Peters. Grand Rapids' Justin Amash scores the highest, with a "B+."
