SALEM, OREGON – The Stormy Ray Cardholders Foundation (SRCF) and the Cannalogix Foundation Medical Cannabis Research Institute wish to express our deepest gratitude, encouragement and recognition for the dedication and fortitude put forth by these champions of patient rights. We would like to publicly acknowledge and thank Michael Hiller, as well as each one of the contributing attorneys representing the plaintiffs in this case. We salute them for their sacrifice, dedication and commitment to be the change we all wish to see. We would also like to recognize the patient plaintiffs alongside the attorneys as warriors for patients’ rights. Each one fights a fight so many are fortunate enough to never had to endure. The quality of life they seek is a fundamental right that each and every healthy person takes for granted every day. The very least any of us could do is publicly support and encourage them for taking a stand for all.

Michael Hiller, and associates: Thank you all for your service to the patients and people of the United States. Every citizen in the U.S. owes each of you a debt of gratitude.

J.B. Creel, EVP and an SRCF Board of Directors spokesperson, said, “I couldn’t think of a better group of individuals to Champion patients’ rights on a federal level. Each one of these warriors represent everyday America–they are our children, our Veterans and our professional athletes. They are our heroes just as much as they are our peers-–in the ‘land of the free,’ we all deserve better. Every American owes them a debt of gratitude for taking the stand to ensure we get that fundamental right. Regardless of the outcome, each will be remembered as Champions for patients’ rights.”
