Congratulations to Mike Liszewski, '11 alum and Policy Director at Americans for Safe Access, for helping draft HR 6335, the "States’ Medical Marijuana Property Rights Protection Act."  The bill, introduced in the House of Representatives last week by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA), is an attempt to stop the seizure of property from landlords of state law-compliant medical marijuana businesses.

"Property owners have become the most recent victims in the Justice Department's escalating attack on medical marijuana," said Steph Sherer, Executive Director of Americans for Safe Access, the country's largest medical marijuana advocacy group. "However, let us not forget that with the closure of these dispensaries, thousands of patients are prevented from safely obtaining a medication that has already been deemed legal to use with a physician's approval."
