Americans for Safe Access has filed a petition charging the federal Department of Health and Human Services with violating the "Data Quality Act" by ignoring studies confirming the medical safety and efficacy of cannabis. To publicize the petition -and to protest the pseudo-science that has denied Americans safe access to cannabis all these years- ASA director Steph Sherer and 13 other patients and advocates got arrested Oct. 5 as they tried to enter the HHS office building in Washington. They were wrapped in a huge banner inscribed with the names of 7,000 pro-cannabis doctors (obtained by the Marijuana Policy Project). They chanted "Truth and evidence, cannabis is medicine" and "Schedule One to Schedule Three, cannabis is helping me."
