Action Alert: Let Patients Tell The Truth: Urge your Congressman to Co-Sponsor H.R. 4272, The Steve McWilliams Truth in Trials Act

LET MEDICAL MARIJUANA
DEFENDANTS TELL THE TRUTH,
NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

In the wake of the U.S.
Supreme Court’s ruling in
Raich earlier this year which
permits the federal government
to continue arresting and
prosecuting medical marijuana
patients and their caregivers
even in states where medical
use of marijuana is permitted,
U.S. Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA) and
a bipartisan group of
co-sponsors have re-introduced
legislation to that would let
medical marijuana defendants
the right to tell the truth!

H.R 4272, officially dubbed
“The Steve McWilliams Truth in
Trials Act”, guarantees
medical marijuana defendants
the right to introduce
evidence demonstrating that
the marijuana-related
activities for which they
stand accused were performed
in compliance with State law
regarding the medical use of
marijuana. Moreover, the bill
specifically limits the
government’s ability to seize
assets – including medical
cannabis plants!

Contact your Member of
Congress today! Urge your
Representative to co-sponsor
H.R. 4272, common sense
legislation that let’s
patients tell the truth, the
whole truth and nothing but
the truth!
