JEFF SESSIONS SUED IN LANDMARK LAWSUIT CHALLENGING THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THE CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT

In a 90-page Complaint, attorneys representing five plaintiffs maintain that the CSA, in classifying Cannabis as a “Schedule I drug,” is so irrational that it violates the U.S. Constitution.

Court says medical marijuana use in compliance with state law can’t be federally prosecuted

 

Partial victory, related to funding of DOJ activities:

We therefore conclude that, at a minimum, § 542 prohibits DOJ from spending funds from relevant appropriations acts for the prosecution of individuals who engaged in conduct permitted by the State Medical Marijuana Laws and who fully complied with such laws.

Cannabinoids remove plaque-forming Alzheimer’s proteins from brain cells

“When we were able to identify the molecular basis of the inflammatory response to amyloid beta, it became clear that THC-like compounds that the nerve cells make themselves may be involved in protecting the cells from dying.”

Marijuana-Based Drug Found to Reduce Epileptic Seizures

An experimental drug derived from marijuana has succeeded in reducing epileptic seizures in its first major clinical trial, the product’s developer announced on Monday, a finding that could lend credence to the medical marijuana movement.

That brave woman we saw a couple of years back was correct, and she helped lead the way to a new drug. How many decades have the medical benefits of cannabis been suppressed by the corruption in DC?

Drug Policy Alliance:

End the Federal War on Medical Marijuana

Last night the U.S. House voted against allowing Veterans Administration (VA) doctors to discuss and recommend marijuana to their patients.

Over the last week, thousands of advocates like you urged your representatives to vote in favor of the Veterans Equal Access Amendment so that suffering veterans would have access to medical marijuana. But despite immense pressure, we lost by just three votes, 213-210.

While this is a loss — especially for veterans — there are reasons to be optimistic. We picked up 15 more votes than last year, despite our opponents issuing outright lies and using drug war scare tactics. Your advocacy is working — support for medical marijuana is increasing rapidly in Congress.

At the end of the day this bill would have only been a temporary fix, allowing VA doctors to recommend medical marijuana for one year only. That’s why we continue to work with members of the House and Senate to pass the CARERS Act — the most comprehensive medical marijuana bill Congress has ever seen.

The CARERS Act will let states legalize medical marijuana without federal interference, permanentlyallow Veterans Affairs doctors to recommend marijuana to ailing veterans, eliminate barriers to marijuana research, and so much more.

Thank you for getting us so far. But now it’s time to push forward more aggressively, and on more fronts, than ever before. Let’s keep the pressure on — tell your members of Congress to support the CARERS Act!

Petition to Congress:

Medical Marijuana Under Attack

Medical marijuana will never be safe unless we change federal law permanently — and the CARERS Act is the unprecedented chance to do it. Tell your U.S. House Representatives to support the bill.
