Utah Liberty Alliance does not normally concern itself with federal affairs, but a House bill ending federal marijuana prohibition desperately needs our support! If you are not opposed to participating in the political process, we urge you to contact your legislator to let them know they must do everything they can to get H.R. 2306 passed.
Drug Policy Alliance has a customizable form letter that automatically sends your message to your representatives based on your address information. Obviously, you should customize the message to reflect your own thoughts and feelings on the bill.
If you visit the bill’s page on OpenCongress.org, you can click “Support” in the right column to write a message to your representatives based on your address information.
From DrugPolicy.org’s message concerning this issue:
Multiple federal agencies are working in tandem to assault medical marijuana patients and providers. The DEA is raiding licensed and regulated dispensaries that are legal under state law. The ATF is discriminating against medical marijuana patients by prohibiting them from owning firearms. The IRS is rejecting standard business expense tax deductions from legitimate medical marijuana providers. And federal threats have intimidated banks and landlords into refusing to do business with the medical marijuana industry. Even free speech is under attack — at least one federal prosecutor is threatening to target newspapers that accept medical marijuana advertising.
Last week, for the first time ever a Gallup Poll found that 50 percent of all Americans want marijuana legalized. We have reached the tipping point — now let’s seize this opportunity!
