2500 Calvert Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20008
This year's Americans for Safe Access Unity Conference focuses on "The Price of Being a Medical Cannabis Patient". Despite increasing legal access across the country, patients still face significant barriers.
HLG Attorney Bridget Hill-Zayat will be presenting on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM:
Advocacy in the Courts: Protecting Patients’ Rights
From our first legal fight in 2005 to force changes in policy at the California Highway Patrol to stop confiscating medical cannabis from legal patients during routine traffic stops, more patients are finding that when we can not get the legislation to move forward we have to reply on the courts to make changes happen. This panel will explore current legal and judicial issues that patients are facing due to their status as medical cannabis patients or their desire to access medical cannabis. The panel will talk about the processes for ensuring rights for patients which includes legislation, regulation, and ultimately litigation.
Location: Blue Room
