Petition

Defend Medical Marijuana Patients and Providers

About the Petition

The federal government is raiding, prosecuting and incarcerating individuals who are acting in compliance with state medical marijuana laws. Currently 20 states, as well as the District of Columbia, have passed laws protecting medical marijuana patients from state prosecution. Yet, the risk of federal incarceration is still an ongoing fear in some states. The States' Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act would ensure that medical marijuana patients in states that have approved its use will no longer fear prosecution under federal law.

Stand with organizations like NORML and urge Congress to protect state-authorized medical marijuana patients and providers under The States' Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act.

I’m writing to show my support for the States' Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act. I believe additional legal protections are needed for state-authorized medical marijuana patients and providers. One million Americans use medical marijuana in accordance with state medical marijuana laws—some suffering from HIV, AIDS, cancer or dementia. The federal government must halt interference with state medical marijuana regulation and recognize the rights of these individuals.

I stand with organizations like NORML in urging Congress to protect state-authorized medical marijuana patients and providers under The States' Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act.

Sincerely,

[Your name here]
