I received the following very important information:

Once again, it’s down to the wire.

Tomorrow, the deadline for approving a federal spending bill in Congress arrives, and along with it comes the threat of losing federal protections for medical marijuana. If lawmakers do not include language that prevents the Department of Justice from targeting state-legal medical marijuana programs, or if there is a government shutdown, there will be nothing to stop Attorney General Jeff Sessions from attacking patients and providers that are in compliance with state law.

Don’t let your elected representatives leave for the holidays without reminding them about the spirit of compassion.

Please contact your lawmakers TODAY and urge them to protect state medical marijuana programs!
