ACS Platform

    Our Core Values:

  • Patients are a vulnerable group who deserve the highest standard of medical care and products.
  • Recreational use is not the same as medical use.  These groups have different goals and needs and must be addressed separately.
  • Prohibition of cannabis is a major public health hazard that has failed to decrease drug use and has led to unsupportable consequences.
  • Cannabis is medicine. It should be regulated like other medications and be available by prescription including in botanical form.
  • Cannabis products should not make unsubstantiated medical claims.  Products should be required to meet strict standards of safety, bioavailability, and efficacy.
  • Dispensaries should operate like pharmacies.  They should provide products that are safe and effective.  They should not provide medical advice to patients.  They should not contradict patients’ clinicians’ orders.
