Today is the start of Medical Marijuana Week, and Americans for Safe Access has created a week of action for you to participate in to save safe access. Today’s target is Obama.
Despite his indication to take a more reasonable approach to medical cannabis, President Obama and his Administration have become more aggressive towards our community. In addition to raids, the Obama Administration has launched a variety of new tactics including patient privacy violations, seizing and shutting down of medical cannabis related bank accounts, manipulation of the tax code, threats to government officials and landlords, and interfering with medical cannabis patients’ Right to Bear Arms.

Our voice must be heard! Ask Obama to work with our community in order to develop policies that work! Rather than using scarce federal resources to interfere with state sanctioned medical cannabis laws, urge Obama to work with state officials to harmonize state and federal law thereby legitimizing the medical cannabis community.
Call the White House switchboard today, and tell Obama to end federal interference in state sanctioned medical cannabis programs! Dial 202-456-1414 and use the following script to help save safe access
As a candidate and our President, you indicated that you would take a more reasonable approach to medical cannabis; however, your administration has done just the opposite! Your administration’s interference with medical cannabis laws is jeopardizing people’s lives who rely on a variety of access models to acquire their doctor recommended medication! Stop wasting scarce federal resources to circumvent state laws. Instead, work with lawmakers to develop new policies that will harmonize federal law with states that work hard to provide safe access of medical cannabis to qualifying patients. End the federal attack on the medical cannabis community today!
