Coalition for Access Now drops new federal bill alongside Rep. Scott Perry
WASHINGTON, DC - Coalition for Access Now announced a new bill this morning that would allow those suffering from debilitating conditions to gain access to life-saving hemp oil therapies across the nation. Rep.Scott Perry (R-PA), families, and other lawmakers just introduced this bill with bipartisan support on the Hill.
Realm of Caring Foundation applauds Congressman Scott Perry (PA-R) and the many other lawmakers who stood up today by introducing the 'Charlotte’s Web Medical Access Act 2015’ in support of the thousands of families across the country working to achieve access to therapeutic hemp oil for America's suffering children and others in need. This bipartisan piece of legislation will provide clarity to the existing legal ambiguity surrounding the use of, and access to, hemp oil therapies. The lack of clearly defined laws surrounding hemp and CBD is currently standing in the way of citizens receiving the therapy they need. This injustice cannot continue in this country. Our organization has witnessed the 19th death since the beginning of the year this week. These families were waiting, and they can wait no longer. "My son was receiving hospice palliative services before using Charlotte's Web, he is now 30 months seizure free, and thriving. What if he had to wait? He may not be here." says Heather Jackson, executive director of the Realm of Caring. "The actions taken today by these leaders in Congress gives tremendous hope to those in need from coast to coast that our voices are being heard and positive changes will be made in the lives of our children and our loved ones.”
