ASA vs DEA
I received a letter this AM with an important development in the ASA vs. DEA case.. Here it is in part from Steph Sherer Executive Director ASA..DD:
Late last week Americans for Safe Access (ASA) got some exciting news: the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit agreed to hear oral arguments in Americans for Safe Access v. Drug Enforcement Administration. Ten years after original rescheduling petition was filed, the courts will finally review the scientific evidence regarding the therapeutic value of cannabis!
……………Last year, we appealed the Administration’s decision to deny our nine-year old rescheduling petition, knowing that the courts could still choose not to hear our case. The decision to hear oral arguments is huge. This appeal may lead to the first evidentiary hearings of the medical value of cannabis since 1994 – and a lot has happened since then!
………….ASA can make this happen. We have a strong legal team and recognized expertise in the field. We also have a comprehensive plan to use media, legislation, and strategic grassroots organizing to get the most out of this lawsuit……………
Victory on this front would literally be the turning point for safe access to medical cannabis nationwide! We can fight this fight and win – if people like you support the effort. Thank you for helping make it happen…………
