Support the STATES Act
Millions of Americans suffering from life-threatening and debilitating diseases like cancer and chronic pain use medical marijuana to alleviate their suffering and improve their quality of life.
Unfortunately, federal law still criminalizes the sale and use of medical marijuana.
It’s time for that to change. We have an historic opportunity right now to make our voices heard and demand that Congress finally recognizes that marijuana is medicine, not a crime.
In June, bi-partisan legislation dubbed the STATES Act was introduced in the U.S. House and Senate. This bill would allow each state to craft its own rules on how to regulate marijuana without fear that the federal government will shut its program down and leave patients without legal access to their medicine.
This bill is supported by both Republicans and Democrats and has a real shot at becoming law if we work together to make our voices heard.
Please take 60-seconds to send your federal representatives a message in support of the STATES Act. And, if you feel comfortable doing so, please personalize your message so your elected officials understand the important impact medical marijuana has made in your life or the lives of your loved ones.
