No On 2 Propaganda

In a new commercial designed to scare voters, No on 2 is falsely claiming that Amendment 2 would replace pharmacists with "budtenders."
The truth is fairly simple. Federal law's prohibition of marijuana legally prevents doctors from "prescribing" medical marijuana and pharmacists from dispensing.  However, in states where medical marijuana is legal, doctors may "recommend" medical marijuana that can only be dispensed in a licensed dispensary. 
That's the way it works in 25 other states where patients with cancer, MS, epilepsy, HIV/AIDS, and other serious conditions can find relief.

Not that this is a surprise. The No On 2 campaign, underwritten in part by a couple who have made a fortune running a drug treatment center accused of torturing its patients, has made up lies from the beginning.
They immorally delayed relief for hundreds of thousands of patients by keeping us under 60% in 2014—mainly by misleading voters about what the law actually said. 

Thank you to the Greenspoon & Marder Law firm, which has generously offered to match your donation, dollar for dollar.
