ASA is on the way to Federal Court!

Posted on | August 7, 2012 | No Comments

A message from Steph Sherer, Executive Director, ASA:

The only way to completely protect patients, cultivators, and providers of medical cannabis from federal enforcement is by changing federal law. The Drug Enforcement Administration keeps raiding cultivators and providers, and the Department of Justice continues to intimidate patients, property owners, and lawmakers in several states. Congress is stalled on this issue, but there is another way to break the impasse: federal court.

Late last week Americans for Safe Access (ASA) got some exciting news: the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit agreed to hear oral arguments in Americans for Safe Access v. Drug Enforcement Administration. Ten years after original rescheduling petition was filed, the courts will finally review the scientific evidence regarding the therapeutic value of cannabis!

We need your help to keep fighting this decade-long battle to remove medical cannabis from the federal list of dangerous drugs with no medical value. Make a contribution today if you can afford to support ASA’s work.

Last year, we appealed the Administration’s decision to deny our nine-year old rescheduling petition, knowing that the courts could still choose not to hear our case. The decision to hear oral arguments is huge. This appeal may lead to the first evidentiary hearings of the medical value of cannabis since 1994 – and a lot has happened since then!

ASA can make this happen. We have a strong legal team and recognized expertise in the field. We also have a comprehensive plan to use media, legislation, and strategic grassroots organizing to get the most out of this lawsuit. But we need your help to do it. Please make a special one-time or monthly recurring donation to ASA today.

Victory on this front would literally be the turning point for safe access to medical cannabis nationwide! We can fight this fight and win – if people like you support the effort. Thank you for helping make it happen.
