American's For Safe Access Vs. The Federal Government

After a two year petition process the ASA, or American's for Safe Access filed suit against the federal government of the United States of America for issuing misinformation on medicinal marijuana. ASA is using a little known act called the Data Quality Act as the basis for its suit. Apparently the USA passed a law stating the the FDA must use sound scientific evidence for all information it passes on to the public. The FDA's current position on medicinal marijuana is that there is no medical benefit to the drug. Initially the ASA relied on a petition to change the FDA's statement citing the overwhelming evidence in support of medicinal marijuana, but when the federal government said they would not act on the petition ASA decided to take the matter to court.

Best of luck to you ASA. For more information on this worthy organization go to http://www.safeaccessnow.org/
