Following our recent victories legalizing marijuana in Colorado and Washington, it was only a matter of time before steps were taken toward drug policy reform on a federal level.
Tuesday February 5th, members of Congress announced an ambitious new bill that will end federal marijuana prohibition and allow states to set their own guidelines for the regulation of marijuana, the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2013. This groundbreaking legislation shields individual states from federal interference and allows law enforcement to focus their priorities where they belong: on solving violent crime, not wasting time and resources on nonviolent marijuana arrests.
We need your help, Please take a minute to send a letter to Congress in support of the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2013.

Federal Government has been supplying Cannabis for 30 years!
On November 20th, Irvin Rosenfeld will celebrate 30 years of receiving 10-12 Cannabis cigarettes from the United States Federal Government. He is the longest surviving of the final four Federal Medical Cannabis patients from a program that was started in 1978 and stopped under President H. W. Bush. He and 13 others were “Grand-fathered” in what is called a “Compassionate Care Investigational New Drug “protocol.
“Even though I have a severe bone tumor disorder, I am in great health because of my Cannabis use”, said Rosenfeld. “The sad part is that the Federal Government either doesn’t care or does not want to know how well I am.”
Eighteen states and D.C. have enacted laws that declared that their citizens that need Cannabis for medical use are not criminals. That’s over 40% of the population. 75-80% of the people believe that physicians should have the right to use Medical Cannabis in their practices. When will the Federal Government take real responsibility for the cost of healthcare and do what’s best for patients?
“I am living proof that Medical Cannabis works,” said Rosenfeld, author of “My Medicine” ‘How I Convinced the U.S. Government to Supply My Marijuana and Helped Launch a National Movement’ available at www.mymedicinethebook.com and on Kindle.
