To date, 12 states have passed medical marijuana laws. While the laws differ from state to state, they all work to protect patients and caregivers from criminal charges associated with their medicine.
The bipartisan Hinchey-Rohrabacher amendment to the Commerce, Justice and Science appropriations bill would stop the U.S. Department of Justice from spending taxpayer money to arrest or prosecute legitimate patients -- and their caregivers -- in states where medical marijuana is legal.
Seriously ill patients have the right to effective therapies. To deny patients access to such a therapy is to deny them dignity and respect as persons.
Urge Congress to pass the Hinchey-Rohrabacher amendment and allow health care patients the medicine they need!

This OUGHT to be a no-brainer. Well, MY Representative to Congress knows this! I and others have worked our butts off getting a Medical Marijuana Bill passed in Washington State. It is very frustrating to see the Federal Govt COUNTERACTING THE CLEAR WILL OF THE PEOPLE and spending taxpayers' funds to hamper, and, in many cases, to DENY citizens of Washington State access to the beneficial and even life-saving effects of Medical Marijuana that they are ENTITLED to, by EVERY CONSIDERATION BOTH LEGAL AND MORAL. That this happens is only ANOTHER instance of the Bushco mis-Administration COMPLETE DISREGARD FOR SCIENCE AND FACTUAL TRUTH. Big Pharma wants to outlaw Medical Marijuana, because it REPLACES so MANY of Big Pharma's COSTLY, ADDICTIVE AND HARMFUL drugs!
