Salveo Capital is sponsoring Americans for Safe Access, a nationwide medical cannabis organization that focuses on patient education and patients’ rights. The company appreciates the work that ASA has done aiding patients across the country, and supports ASA’s goals of ensuring access to cannabis for therapeutic uses and research.
ASA’s patient-first approach focusing on safety, legality, and responsibility reflects Salveo’s own commitment to building a sustainable, professional cannabis industry. Additionally, Salveo believes in the efficacy of medical cannabis, and in its potential to improve the lives of millions of people in the U.S. living with debilitating illnesses. ASA stands up for cannabis users that need it the most – patients in need of access to medicine – and does it smartly and compassionately.
“We don’t know everything yet about medical cannabis,” said managing principal Alex Thiersch,” but we know that it works.”
Thiersch is a member of the ownership group of Salveo Health & Wellness, a medical cannabis dispensary opening later this year in district 14 serving Fulton, Hancock, Henderson, McDonough, and Warren counties. He recently spoke as part of the Know Your Rights panel at the Illinois Medical Cannabis Patient Summit hosted jointly by ASA and the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago. He focused on the civil protections available for card-holding cannabis patients granted by the Illinois medical cannabis pilot program.
