Tell the Senator to give the CARERS ACT a hearing.
People have fought for, and given their lives for democracy. People have fled other countries while fearing for their lives for the opportunity to live in a democratic society. This is what our forefathers dreamed of. A land that would be free of tyranny. A country where the system actually works.
The CARERS ACT would allow States to decide what is legal regarding medical marijuana, but Sen. Grassley who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee must schedule a hearing for it to have a chance. This was co-sponsored by numerous legislators. For democracy to work, a hearing is needed. Ask Sen. Grassley to be an American, and give this ACT its hearing.
I've seen what happens when the Committee heads just don't schedule a hearing. Important legislation dies. The hopes for people who are sick and in need of a safer medicine and alternative to pharmaceuticals...is thrown out with the days trash.
If the trump card lies in the Committee head not scheduling a hearing...then we believe the voting public should know too that it was because this hearing wasn't scheduled that their epileptic children still have limited options for treatment. That cancer patients who seek a gentler treatment can't do so without the risk of being treated like a criminal.
For the many, many patients of ailments that would be too long to list we implore you to please give THE CARERS ACT a hearing.
- Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee
Senator Chuck Grassley
Please hold hearings regarding S. 683: The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act.
Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia now permit the therapeutic use of cannabis when authorized by a physician. Patients and providers in these states should be able to participate in these programs without fear of federal prosecution or interference. Passage of this Act would also make it easier for physicians to conduct clinical research regarding the plant’s safety and efficacy.
Amending federal law to acknowledge the plant’s therapeutic efficacy is a policy change supported by nearly 9 out of 10 Americans. A 2014 CNN/ORC poll reveals that 88% of Americans favor the use of medical marijuana when authorized by a physician.
It is time we let science dictate public policy and stop jeopardizing patient’s health and safety.
