In the last few years we have seen so much success in changing medical cannabis laws, but there is more work to be done. We need improvement of state and federal laws. We are closer than ever to passing reform in Congress, and now is the time to leverage our strength.
Progress is happening. During the 115th Congress almost fifty medical cannabis bills have been introduced. However, even in 2018, there are members of Congress who believe the gateway theory and insist that medical cannabis has no benefits. There are still committee chairs who continue to block votes on medical cannabis legislation
That is why ASA created the Vote Medical Marijuana voter guide. The guide shows who is failing patients, and who is fighting to defend them. The guide provides voters with a complete analysis of the current political landscape of medical cannabis in the U.S. Congress and key state races across the nation. With this guide, you can shape the future of medical cannabis policy by voting out our opponents and voting for our champions.
Legislators must listen to the patients they represent. We need your help to elect them. Vote Medical Marijuana can help medical cannabis patients, caregivers, and supporters determine if their Congressional representation is doing everything possible to protect medical cannabis patients. With your support we can continue to put the heat on Congress and let them know that they will be held accountable for their votes.
Help us continue to build on this momentum. Together we are truly making a difference.
