Looking For Relief, More Time
Marijuana protects the nerves and dramatically slows the progression of ALS and other fatal neurological disorders, according to reputable studies. I point this out as a reminder and to provide a voice for those of us caught in the middle of what seems like an intensifying marijuana war.

California Medical Marijuana Laws Conflict
The State of California currently operates under two medical marijuana laws, Proposition 215 California Compassionate Use Act was approved by a vote of the people and instituted in 1996. Senate Bill 420 was passed by the legislature and became law in 2004. Both allow growing marijuana and possession of the leaf for medical purposes. The two laws conflict as Prop 215 makes no mention of amounts while SB 420 quantifies the number of plants and ounces that may be in possession.

Support SB-529 to Protect Safe Access at California Collectives!
On Monday, July 2, the California Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation will debate a bill that could provide sales tax relief to some of the state’s oldest medical cannabis collectives. Americans for Safe Access (ASA) has been working on the issue of sales tax and medical cannabis for over two years. While we have opposed taxing medication from the beginning, this bill is a compromise that would provide some relief to patients and collectives statewide. We need you to take action immediately to get this important bill adopted.

Collateral Punishments for Marijuana Crimes Can Exceed Those for Murder

As a result, most major party presidential candidates have already expressed support for ending federal attacks on medical marijuana patients and caregivers, including Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and former Sen. John Edwards (D-NC), who defended the federal medical marijuana raids in 2004.
