Recently I heard people discussing how to properly answer questions related to cannabis use on insurance paperwork. Answer truthfully about cannabis use on your insurance and you could possibly get denied the critical coverage you need for you and your family, or lie become subject of future rejected claims or worse insurance fraud. This is the type unintended consequences that occur when government makes a plant illegal. We won’t suggest how you should answer on your insurance paperwork, but suffice it to say this is yet another example of how outdated and outrageous laws kill us by a thousand little cuts.
Thankfully there is some good news. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand joined Senators Rand Paul and Corey Booker this week to introduce a bill called the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States Act or (CARERS). In short this bill would move cannabis from a Schedule I drug to a Schedule II drug, remove restrictions on banking, and allows states to chart their own destiny with cannabis.
It seems outrageous that people you don’t know in far away city with different motives and incentives get to decide how you live your life, I am waiting for Democracy 2.0 to make an appearance that can properly represent the will of the people, are you?
