FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) introduced the bipartisan legislation requiring that the federal government respect state marijuana laws. The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act allows Americans to gain access to the care they need by protecting patients from federal intervention in states with existing medical marijuana laws. Congressman Don Young (R-AK) is a co-sponsor of this legislation in the House of Representatives. The CARERS Act also opens the door for families to access cannabidiol (CBP), also known as cannabis oil, as a therapy for epilepsy and seizures in youth, makes it possible for VA physicians to counsel veterans about medical marijuana, and facilitates research into broader uses of marijuana as a therapy. Senator Murkowski: “There remains a conflict between state marijuana laws and federal marijuana laws across the board and this legislation aims to rectify that. This is especially urgent in the medical marijuana arena given the Justice Department’s active effort to derail annual appropriations provisions prohibiting federal interference with medical uses of marijuana authorized under state law. I strongly believe that the federal government has no place in undermining the effective administration of state marijuana laws.”

Our team and colleagues from Epic Esports Events are giving this event everything that we have. I really hope the audience will enjoy the results.

Even better is that this event promises to bring the thrill of high-level competition which The International would have provided this summer, had it not been for the mandated lockdowns.Follow ESI on Instagram
