Contact Your Representative

By The Union of Medical Marijuana Patients on May 8th 2012

As mentioned in out story here, three of our allies in Congress — Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.), Sam Farr (D-Calif.), and Dana Rohrbacher (R-Calif.) — are expected to introduce an amendment to the act that would bar the DOJ from using funds to conduct raids on medical marijuana providers in states that authorize its use and sale. This could be as introduced as soon as today.
Please take a moment to call your representative now and then ask others to do the same.
Look up your representative online using your zip code and then call the House switchboard at (202) 224-3121
and ask to be directed to your member’s office.
Feel free to use the script below to help guide your call:
Hello. I’m calling to ask that Congressperson ___________ vote in support of the “Hinchey, Farr, Rohrbacher Medical Marijuana Amendment” to the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Act being considered. Sixteen states and the District of Columbia have medical marijuana laws on the books and it’s time to stop wasting scarce federal funding on raids that seek to undermine those laws.
Once you make your call, please pass this message on to your patients, colleagues, friends, and associates so that they can take action today as well.
