Protect People Who Use Marijuana As Medicine

Federal Medical Marijuana Can congressBill Piper, Director, Office of National Affairs, Drug Policy Alliance

Last week, members of Congress introduced new legislation that would protect medical marijuana under federal law.

Write your representative in support of legal protections for medical marijuana patients and providers.

For years, federal authorities have waged a war on medical marijuana patients and providers. And, with your help, we’ve been fighting back every step of the way.

Now we have a chance to change federal law to ensure that the assault on medical marijuana comes to an end. The new bills in Congress would recognize the medical use of marijuana and protect patients and providers from federal interference so they no longer have to live in fear of arrest and prosecution.

With medical marijuana laws in 18 states and the District of Columbia and more public and Congressional support than ever, we’re in a better position to advance federal legal protections for medical marijuana. And this promising legislation in Congress is our opportunity to make a real difference at the federal level.

Urge your representative to safeguard medical marijuana patients who are simply trying to access the medicine they need.

Even as we make progress in ending marijuana prohibition more broadly, it is ever more important to ensure that people who use marijuana in states where it is only legal as medicine are fully protected.

It is appalling that the government is using our tax dollars to attack vulnerable patients and undermine state laws. Without a change in federal law, medical marijuana patients will continue to suffer — unless we come together and advocate for what’s right.

Keep the pressure on Congress to end the federal attack on medical marijuana.

  1. You are not allowed to simply fight back. All you’d have to do is identify your enemy. That’s lazy! You must prove in what ways marijuana is a safe and effective medicine. We are past the jet age, and into an age in which disease is conquered. You wouldn’t jeapardize that, would you?

    Take cancer. “Dying” of cancer is not having cancer. If, like me, you got cancer three years ago, your states included a non-dying phase. Therte is zero loss of appetite in this phase. The notion that a cancerous person can eat ignores the way cancer cells use nsugar at one sixteenth efficiency. A tumor takes over your entire metabolism and does not feed you. It eats muscles, fat, and any food. You shrink and die in four months. No patient has the medical right to use a drug past the time it is effective.

    I will not be permitting marijuana advocates to claim theyt help me since I am dying. Can you identify the part which should be reversed, and which I tend to reverse? It is where if you assume that I am dying, I will simply kill you. Stop feedin’ off me! We shall not have truth until all you liars are in jail!

  2. Here is what I sent my Republican Rep Adam Kinzinger:

    Cosponsor H.R. 689 and H.R. 784 Medical Marijuana prohibition is a crime against humanity and a violation of the religious precept – heal the sick. The endocannabinoid system is a major regulator in the body implicated in almost all diseases including cancer. There are patients who can’t wait. Please help.

    Pass it on. Because bogarting is wrong.
