Time to Admit It: Trump Opposes Cannabis Legalization

Americans for Safe Access

Message from David Mangone, Director of Gov't. Affairs


Wow! 2018 has been a big year for medical cannabis victories, and yesterday was no different. You went to the polls and cast your ballot for medical cannabis, and we’re humbled by your advocacy and your support. Last night, we won, and we won big: Missouri, Utah, and Michigan all have new cannabis laws. Wisconsin made it loud and clear they are ready for a medical cannabis program.

With the victories in Missouri and Utah, there are now thirty-three states that will have a medical cannabis program. We also saw  Michigan legalize the non-medical use of cannabis.
With two-thirds of the country now having laws for medical cannabis, and a new Congress, we are in a position to end federal Prohibition once and for all.

Despite our victories, we still have work to do. We still need to:

  • Pass federal legislation
  • Make sure that states laws for the non-medical use of cannabis don’t forget about patients
  • Make sure that states without cannabis programs obtain access to medical cannabis
  • Ensure that medicine is affordable for all patients.

We will not stop until all Americans have safe access to medical cannabis. Thank you for voting and thank you for your support.
