Safe access to medical cannabis is directly related to not only patient’s rights, but equal treatment for LGBT people and other minorities. The federal government continues to persecute minorities and force patients onto the streets to obtain their medicine, which is why we have pledged to take on this important struggle.

Yes on S!

CFAC sponsored the 2012 Yes on S campaign! We successfully qualified an initiative in Imperial Beach that would overturn the city’s ban and replace it with reasonable regulation, providing safe access to medical cannabis patients.

Though we lost the vote in Imperial Beach, we had persuaded hundreds on IB voters why they should stand with sick and dying patients and support Yes on S! In the future, we continue to fight for safe access to medical cannabis throughout San Diego, using our traditional grassroots model to change hearts and minds!

Court Support

Did you know that medical cannabis was legalized as a result of the work of the LGBTQ rights and HIV/AIDS movements? Since then, medical cannabis has become an accepted medical treatment for many conditions and has helped thousands of patients in San Diego County deal with pain resulting from serious chronic and sometimes terminal conditions.

Canvass for a Cause has teamed up with Americans for Safe Access to win safe access during the Yes on S campaign and provide court support for medical cannabis patients! Visit San Diego Americans for Safe Access (link to it) for more information on local medical cannabis activism.

AMERICANS FOR SAFE ACCESS

Did you know that medical cannabis was legalized as a result of the work of the LGBTQ rights and HIV/AIDS movements? Since then, medical cannabis has become an accepted medical treatment for many conditions and has helped thousands of patients in San Diego County deal with pain resulting from serious chronic and sometimes terminal conditions.

Canvass for a Cause has teamed up with Americans for Safe Access to repeal the city’s ban on safe access to medical cannabis through the ballot initiative process.


Rachel Scoma explains CFAC’s stance on medical cannabis.

 

OTHER WORK

We were involved in Prop 19 efforts to legalize various cannabis activities, allow local governments to regulate these activities, permit local governments to impose and collect cannabis-related fees and taxes, and authorize various criminal and civil penalties. CFAC launched the preliminary field effort in partnership with the Control and Regulate 2010 campaign called Yes We Cannabis. This year, CFAC is working with Americans for Safe Access to repeal the city’s ban on safe access to medical cannabis. We recently held a Masquerade fundraiser, and raised over $3,000 that went to our Safe Access in Imperial Beach campaign.
