We’re proud of the policy education and legislative victories that have stopped the marijuana industry in its tracks and educated Americans on the true consequences of today’s high potency THC. Here’s a small highlight of our work and policy priorities:

Research

We helped write the Medical Marijuana Research Act which allows for more data and research on marijuana.

Federal Amendments

We helped introduce almost a dozen amendments to bills being voted on by the House and Senate, including language that would impact the following areas:

Road Testing

Require the Secretary of Transportation to develop best practices for the recognition and testing of drivers impaired by marijuana

Research

Authorizes the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to conduct research on technologies and methods that law enforcement may use to determine whether a driver is impaired by marijuana.

Safety Studies

Prohibits legalization until The Comptroller of the United States, the Secretary of HHS and the Secretary of Transportation have studied the societal, public health and public safety implications of enactment of the bill and the Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse has certified that the societal, public health and public safety benefits of enactment of this bill outweigh the societal, public health and public safety risks

Labeling and Packaging

Requires child-resistant packaging for all marijuana products bearing a warning label which reads: “The Surgeon General has determined pregnant women should not use marijuana, which affects the developing fetus, and is associated with adverse outcomes for newborns including lower birth weight, poor cognitive function, hyperactivity, and other long-term consequences.”

Impact Study

Directs the Department of Education to conduct a study on the impact of legalization to schools and school aged children

Maintains the penalties in the Controlled Substance Act for selling or providing minors with marijuana and for distributing marijuana near schools.
