Americans for Safe Access
In 2002 Americans for Safe Access (ASA) was founded to promote the opportunity to use cannabis for research and therapeutic uses. Their focus is on the patients who rely on cannabis as a medication. They advocate for patients civil liberties.

In 2002 the ASA started in California. They joined the AIDS\HIV organizations to help medical cannabis providers protect themselves from federal raids. ASA was an integral part to implementing Proposition 215 in California that gave safe access to medical cannabis. The efforts in California continued to expand to other states and capital hill.

The ASA is a grassroots organization of 50,000 members. Their efforts focus on marijuana regulation as an herbal medicine. Membership allows free legal support from the ASA and discounts from supporting affiliates.
