Americans for Safe Access Petition Urges President Obama to Correct Medical Marijuana Misinformation Before Trump, Senator Jeff Sessions Take Office

Patients and members of Americans for Safe Access on Thursday, January 19, will deliver more than 96,000 signatures to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). The petitions call on President Obama to instruct the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to stop disseminating false information about medical cannabis immediately and ensure that any future information about medical cannabis treatment reflects medically-accurate and up-to-date facts.  

The petition, which calls on President Obama to take immediate action, comes after the US Senate’s confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) to Attorney General. Senator Sessions has actively opposed the use of medical and recreational cannabis saying, “good people don’t smoke marijuana” and argued that cannabis is a gateway drug that leads to cocaine and heroin use, something that has been resoundingly disproved by scientific evidence.

The group and petition signers, therefore, feel it is crucial this information is updated prior to the new Administration taking office.

The Change.org petition follows a petition filed by Americans for Safe Access to the Department of Justice which requested the DEA correct the  25 violations of the Information Quality Act (IQA, aka Data Quality Act) cited, alleging that the DEA website currently contains inaccurate statements that do not meet informational standards required by the law.

The group also argues that the DEA continues to distribute statements about the efficacy of medical cannabis and its risks, which have been refuted by the DEA itself in the recent “Denial of Petition to Initiate Proceedings to Reschedule Marijuana,” issued August 12, 2016.
