Give The Gift of Americans For Safe Access Membership

And Give The Gift of Advocacy And Education

This time of year many of us are reflecting on the people and things in our lives that are important to us. If the work that we do is meaningful to you, then we hope you will consider giving the gift of ASA membership to someone you value this year. To make this a new holiday tradition, we would also like to offer you the option to give that gift for free!

Give the gift of an ASA membership this holiday season!

If you begin or renew your membership between now and January 1st, we will give you an additional membership for you to share with someone else. You can think of it as a buy one get one or as half price, but the important thing is that you can take this opportunity to give the gift of ASA membership(and avoid a trip to the mall)!

If you do not personally know of someone in need of an ASA membership, we work with patient advocates on very limited incomes and would be happy to donate your extra membership to someone who could not afford it otherwise.

Our members decide to join ASA because they value the work that we do, and supporting us as an organization gives them the pride of knowing that they contribute directly to that work. Members working together is how this organization functions and how we fight for patients every day.

Join Americans For Safe Access and help prevent the Trump Administration and Attorney General Sessions, who oftentimes spreads false information without supporting any of his claims with any science like this;

“Marijuana is a cure for opiate abuse? Give me a break!... Maybe science will prove I'm wrong.”

Please take advantage of this opportunity to share that sense of pride with someone else.

About Americans for Safe Access

The mission of Americans for Safe Access (ASA) is to ensure safe and legal access to cannabis (marijuana) for therapeutic use and research.

ASA was founded in 2002, by medical cannabis patient Steph Sherer, as a vehicle for patients to advocate for the acceptance of cannabis as medicine. With over 100,000 active members in all 50 states, ASA is the largest national member-based organization of patients, medical professionals, scientists and concerned citizens promoting safe and legal access to cannabis for therapeutic use and research. ASA works to overcome political, social and legal barriers by creating policies that improve access to medical cannabis for patients and researchers through legislation, education, litigation, research, grassroots empowerment, advocacy and services for patients, governments, medical professionals, and medical cannabis providers.

ASA and our members have moved public policy forward by incorporating strategies across many disciplines. ASA has brought together policy experts, public health experts, attorneys, lobbyists, scientists, industry associations and medical professionals to create the campaigns, projects and programs that have broken down political, social, academic, and legal barriers across the US.
