The California legislature will vote on several bills this year that will have serious ramifications — both good and bad — for medical cannabis patients in California. I am writing to invite you to a very special event that will help shape the new laws and set the course for patient-led advocacy in California for years to come. Please join me in Sacramento May 19-21 for the California Unity Conference and medical cannabis lobby day.
The conference is organized by Californians to Regulate Medical Marijuana, a statewide coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to pushing back on federal pressure on medical cannabis in California. We are planning two days of strategy and skills-building. Then on Monday, May 21, we will be going to the Capitol en masse to support good legislation and stop bad bills. Conference attendees will visit all 120 legislative offices that day. This is an important element in our state campaign this year, and your participation is crucial. Register online today.
This conference is an important stepping stone to the future. Our work in California will not end when the legislature recesses this fall, regardless of which bills are adopted. We may be fighting for safe access for a long time, and this is a chance to lay the ground work for success in the future. ASA is calling on patients and advocates to join us and help shape the next chapter in this long fight.
I hope you will also plan to attend ASA’s 10-Year Anniversary Gala Celebration on the evening of Saturday, May 19, in Sacramento. We want you to celebrate the work we have done to together and hear about the exciting things that are on the horizon. Don’t miss out. Buy your tickets today. Proceeds benefit ASA.
I am looking forward to seeing you in Sacramento May 19-21. Thank you for being a part of this exciting event!
