Join us February 4, 2016 at 6:00pm ET with ASA's Executive Director Steph Sherer, Mike Liszewski ASA's government affairs director and with medical cannabis patients from across the country as we discuss and answer questions about ASA's latest report, “Medical Marijuana Access in the US: A Patient-Focused Analysis of the Patchwork of State Laws”. This annual report evaluates the array of differing state medical cannabis programs across the country from a perspective often overlooked in policy debates: the patients’ and provides policy makers with model legislation and regulations. With dozens of states already seeing legislative and regulatory proposals in 2016, this groundbreaking report will provide state lawmakers with timely tools they need to improve their medical cannabis programs to truly meet the needs of the patients they are meant to serve.

If you have questions or comments that you will like answered, please leave them in the comment field and we will answer them LIVE on air.

VICTORY! President Obama extended a federal “cease fire” in the 20-year war on state medical cannabis programs on Friday evening, when he signed theFY 2016 omnibus appropriations bill.

It is clear that the federal government’s war on patients is drawing to a close, and passing new laws in Congress is the logical next step. Congress has a viable option in front of them in the bipartisan Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States Act (CARERS) Act of 2015.

ATTENTION FLORIDA: As Florida inches closer to growing and distributing a low-potency strain of medical marijuana, state health officials are unveiling tough regulations to control the process.

The regulations range from mandatory 24-hour video monitoring of nurseries and dispensaries to tamper-proof locks and spot inspections of the facilities. At a public hearing Wednesday, representatives of the five nurseries licensed to grow the so-called 'Charlotte's Web' marijuana strain voiced support for the Florida Department of Health's proposal. http://bit.ly/1U8d6WB
