Yesterday, Jeff Sessions rescinded the Cole Memo that provided a layer of protection to medical cannabis patients and programs (read more here).
In his memo he stated that the decision to repeal was because of “Congress’s determination that marijuana is a dangerous drug and that marijuana activity is a serious crime.” So, it is IMPERATIVE that we continue the only protections from federal interference we have, the CJS Medical Marijuana Amendment, which has to be renewed each year.
These current protections are set to expire on January 19th, so we REALLY need your help to ensure these protections continue in 2018.
Contact your Senators and Representative today to ask them to ensure the CJS Medical Marijuana Amendment is included in the FY2018 appropriations package AND end the federal conflict once and for all by sponsoring the CARERS Act.
“The U.S. Congress made the possession of marijuana in every state — and the distribution — an illegal act. If that’s something that’s not desired any longer, Congress should pass a law to change the rule.” -Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
