Today, many Americans are suffering needlessly because our federal laws have banned prescription of a promising treatment: medical marijuana.
Veterans coming home from combat, seniors facing medical conditions associated with old age, and Americans of every age fighting debilitating diseases — all of them deserve the best treatment possible. And many medical professionals know that in some cases the best treatment possible is medical marijuana.
But federal laws against marijuana are blocking patients’ access to the treatment they need. So Senator Cory Booker, along with Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Rand Paul, have introduced legislation to fix the problem.
Sign on now as a citizen cosponsor of our bipartisan legislation, the CARERS Act, S. 683, to allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for medical treatment.
