Post Help pass SB 1182 to protect patients and caregivers in CA
on: May 26, 2012, 22:44

A bill by California Senator Mark Leno (D-SF) will help to protect medical cannabis patients and caregivers from unnecessary harassment or arrest, but we need your help to get it passed by the Senate before May 31. Can you take a minute right now to send an email to your California Senator and ask him or her to vote yes on SB 1182? http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=HhAPTm7vrpPsvlJ4JTHtd99vLLazVwld - Americans for Safe Access’ (ASA) online action center makes it easy to find your Senator and send an email right now.

SB 1182 adds legally organized and operated medical cannabis patients’ cooperatives and collectives to the list of those protected by California’s medical cannabis laws. They should already enjoy this protection, but some law enforcement officials and judges interpret the law too narrowly. That means patients and caregivers growing and providing cannabis in accordance with state law may still be harassed, arrested, and even prosecuted. SB 1182 will help stop this by making the intent and scope of the law clear.

This straight-forward clarification should be easy to adopt, but the issue of medical cannabis is still controversial. Lawmakers need to know that you are part of the seventy-seven percent of Californians who support the sensible regulation and control of medical cannabis. They need to know that their constituents support this kind of common sense legislation. Send an email today -http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=8AMZMQDZYUByU49sTfFJcd9vLLazVwld - to help drive home that message before the Senate votes on SB 1182.

Forward this message to your friends and loved ones in California who believe in medical cannabis. We need their help too!

Thank you,

P.S. – ASA counts on your support to fight for good legislation, provide free legal support, and file important lawsuits. Please make a contribution to support our work today. http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=5j2c1foM33ZJ5ABaPxuf3t9vLLazVwld
