Compassionate Access Act Public Statement

Compassionate Access Act Public Statement

Realm of Caring is thrilled to hear about another bill in the U.S. Congress which would increase access to potentially life saving cannabis therapies. On April 14th, Representatives Morgan Griffith (R-VA) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced the Compassionate Access Act to reschedule marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD).

As Griffith stated, "it is time to research this further." The current schedule of marijuana, including CBD derived from marijuana, states it has no medicinal benefits. The Realm of Caring opposes this scheduling and states that cannabinoids have legitimate, positive effects, and, for some, cannabinoid therapies are the only form of care that relieves their symptoms. Children and adults across the country suffer needlessly because they lack access, and it is passed time for this to end.

Contact your lawmakers and tell them why increased access is important to you. Let your voice be heard!
