An Important Message From Whoopi Goldberg

  • by Whoopi Goldberg September 5, 2017

    Whoopi GoldbergI’m writing to you with an urgent request: that you join me in telling Congress to protect lawful medical marijuana patients and programs from Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    Send a message to your member of Congress NOW

    Since 2014, members of Congress have passed annual spending bills that have included a provision protecting those who engage in the state-sanctioned use and dispensing of medical cannabis from undue prosecution by the Department of Justice. The amendment, known as Rohrabacher-Blumenauer, maintains that federal funds cannot be used to prevent states from “implementing their own state laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.”

    Thirty states have or are in the process of implementing a lawful market, serving millions of men, women, and children who depend on their medication.

    I started my company Whoopi and Maya so that women suffering from debilitating menstrual pain could find relief from a safe, natural product rather than turning to potentially addictive and dangerous pharmaceutical drugs.

    It is absolutely critical that we ensure these patients can continue to access their medicine.

    Attorney General Sessions and the Department of Justice should not put patients at risk! Stand with me and NORML in our fight to defend medical access to cannabis by writing your elected officials in support of the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment today.

    Join me in sending a message to Congress now

    Thanks for all that you do,

      How about also including recreational in that as well? We need to stop the hypocracy. What is so wrong with recreational? Why just protect medical?
      Why should people have ONLY alcohol as a legal recreational choice? When alcohol causes more damage to society.
      So? what now we get to keep medical and lose recreational?
      Sounds like the medical industry wants to take over and be the new dealers?
      protect recreational too!!!!
      Medical only is a takeover bid!

        The only hypocrisy here is blaming people for a double standard that doesn’t exist. Just because someone defends one type of pain management with marijuana does not mean we all stopped fighting for recreational legalization. Smoke a bowl n chill out Pete.

        Both the pharmaceutical and Alcohol industry lobbyists fear they will lose revenue, maybe?

      Love this woman. Can’t believe how real she is. She was hilarious as a comedian and now, as an icon, she’s helping to drive our society in the right direction. Fully support patient rights to access the medication that they need. This is not about politics, it’s about life. We need to help those suffering if this is what helps them, we need to make sure that they not only have the access that they need, but that they are protected from a government which would for whatever reason prevent their state-sanctioned access. Go Whoopi, you’re the best.

      I disagree…

      Using meds to deal with peoples problem is not the answer. Most people that use the “medical excuses” for legalizing marijuana is nothing more than a cover up. America needs to wake up and smell the coffee, we are trying to deal with the fruit of the problem. When in reality we need to deal with the roots.

      Have a Great Day #anticannabis

        Go choke on a pill if you will,
        But dont take weed from those in need
        Choose for yourself, Or choose your wealth
        And end up synthetic, your cause prosthetic
        It’s pathetic, your whole hate is kinetic
        And the one you harm most is prophetic

      • Victor says:

        Wake up and smell the what? Coffee? Right, so Americans should use and abuse caffeine, a stimulant. Sure, okay. Why though? Because society accepts it? Because it increases productivity? But what about those who see a reduction in seizures when using CBS? Don’t they have a right to live a better life?

      • Dain Bramage says:

        You’re promoting drugs on this website, because coffee is a drug, so STFU! Dumbass.

      • Sean says:

        @Ron: how people choose to deal with their medical issues is none of your goddamn business. Get a fucking a life. Oh that’s right, drug warriors have no lives since you and your fellow drug war creeps make it your life’s work to destroy other peoples lives. Now piss off punk!

    5. Ron says:

      I disagree,

      Stop using sorry excuses…#anti-cannabis

    6. I have seizure problems and use my mmj also for the pain in my chest

      My husband 6 year veteran of the armed forces, 59 years old, has stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer. He wants and needs Medical Marijuana. All the paperwork was sent to Tallahassee on Sept. 7th, 2017. They claim filing is “computerized” and takes 30 days plus five days for USPS arrival and maybe another 30 days before a human gets a hold of it and approves it and… I called them to see how it was going 9/15. I called three time and waited over 35 minutes and was then disconnected? I got through on the fourth try and was told as stated above. Hurricane Irma has backed them up an additional four days ( we were affected as well). All I can say here is HELP!!!!!! Time means everything to us!
