The latest news is that the Hinchey-Rohrabacher Amendment is likely to actually hit the House this coming Tuesday (this is an amendment that prevents the federal government from spending money to interfere with medical marijuana patients who are following state law in those states that have medical marijuana laws).
This is great, because it takes advantage of all the recent press and reaction to the Supreme Court decision.
It also means that we must act now!
- DRCNet instant letter to Congress
- Drug Policy Alliance instant letter to Congress
- Marijuana Policy Project instant letter to Congress
- NORML instant letter to Congress
The links above are the bare minimum. If you really care, call your Congressional office on Monday morning and tell them to support the Hinchey-Rohrabacher Amendment when it comes to the floor.
Get all your friends to act, too. All of them. Seriously…
Are you afraid to tell them you support medical marijuana? Are you afraid to tell them that you believe it’s wrong for federal law enforcement agents to harrass sick people who are following their doctor’s advice and state law? Are you afraid to say that tax money would be better spent going after terrorists than breaking open the heads of cancer patients in wheelchairs?
If you were disappointed with the Supreme Court decision, then you must act.
