An Americans for Safe Access sponsored resolution that calls on Congress and the President to end federal interference in state medical cannabis laws is now being heard in the State Assembly. SJR 14, introduced by Senator Mark Leno (D-SF) and passed by the State Senate last year, calls for the development of a comprehensive national policy to ensure safe and legal access. We need you to call TODAY to help move this resolution out of the Assembly Committee on Health (hearing today).
SJR 14 seeks to give guidance to the Administration, by calling for an end to federal interference and intimidation, fair trials for medical cannabis defendants in federal court, and advanced clinical trials into the medical benefits of cannabis. The resolution is part of ASA's national strategy to bring safe access to every American.
Please see below for instructions on how to call your Assembly person. Your call is needed now to bring this resolution out of committee and to the floor of the Assembly for final passage!
